“After more than five years, the renovation of the Fine Arts Work Center campus is nearly complete.

“This is the beginning of our shakedown, to see what it’s like having people hanging out here,” said Bruce Danzer, co-chair of FAWC’s building committee, during a pre-opening reception on Friday, Oct. 29. “It’s really going to be a time of invention for us, rethinking how things happen.”

The vision was to unite the public spaces around a central gathering place, said new FAWC Executive Director Sharon Polli. Before, many of the center’s public spaces were scattered around the FAWC campus.

The project started with replacing the gravel courtyard with a wharf timber deck, soon to be outfitted with cafe tables and chairs. “Whenever you start a project, it ends up taking on more lives,” Danzer observed.”
