How times change!
Cornish is actively working on updating our campus spaces with several notable projects nearing completion.
Have you noticed the progress on the building at the corners of Boren and Lenora? This is a construction project called The Ivey at Boren, and is named after Cornish alum William Ivey (September 30, 1919 – May 17, 1992) an American painter, described by the Seattle Times as “the Dean of Northwest Painters”. The Ivey is the future home of a public facing, street-level gallery, and much anticipated state-of-the-art lecture and events hall next to the Raisbeck Performance Hall. Have you heard of the Myers Sound System? Well, the lecture hall at The Ivey will have one. IYKYK!
These new spaces help cement our future as a resonant and relevant college of the arts and design and will be used in so many ways to connect with our community and the entire neighborhood of South Lake Union.
Major renovations are currently underway on the first floor of MCC, our Main Campus Center, for the new Jon and Mary Shirley Fabrication Studio that replaces the old sculpture lab. The anticipated opening for this new facility will be Spring 2022.
Detailed information for these projects can be found here. Check it out!
