AFAS Center for the Arts "Tops Out"
August 1, 2016
On August 21st, the 14,000-square-foot AFAS Center for the Arts' building reached its highest point and was celebrated with a traditional "Topping-Out" ceremony. The ART for ART's Sake staff, along with the construction and design teams, were joined by members of the community to celebrate the placing of the final beam on the new 3-story building. Guests were invited to sign the steel beam and observe its placement as it was hoisted by crane to its new home atop the new building. The completed building, designed by STITCH Design Shop, along with the adjoining ARTivity on the Green art park, also operated by AFAS, will change the face of Liberty and Seventh Streets and be a huge asset to the community. The building is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2017.
