Groundbreaking ceremonies for the University of Wyoming's new $33 million Visual Arts Center are scheduled for Wednesday at 10 a.m. in Laramie.
The Visual Arts Center will be located on the undeveloped northwest corner of 22nd Street and Willett Drive and east of the Centennial Complex building that houses the UW Art Museum and American Heritage Center.
The Visual Arts Center will replace overcrowded and out-of-date facilities for visual arts and will include studios for ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, graphic design, art history and sculpture.
Construction of the facility will begin later this month, with completion scheduled 18 months after construction begins.
