Celebrating 50 years of the Hall of Fine Arts

By Brandi Burger, Contributing Writer

April of 1965 marked the groundbreaking for the construction of West Liberty’s Hall of Fine Arts Building. Although the building seems to be something students now have accepted as a normal part of the campus, the construction of the Hall of Fine Arts building was a major event in its time.

Before the building was constructed, art related courses were held throughout the campus in areas such as Main Hall and College Hall. The space was limited with art classrooms located in a general classroom space and works of art were hung in the hallways rather than displayed in a gallery.
