“This place makes me want to sing…The development of the Granoff Center has been brought about by a powerful yet simple principle—that when we share our intellectual capital and our resources, we can achieve something quite different than that which we can do alone.”
–Richard Fishman, building champion, Director of the Creative Arts Council, Professor of Visual Arts (2001)
Opened in 2001, the $40-million Perry and Marty Granoff Center for the Creative Arts features a 218-person theater, recording and production studios, media labs, gallery space and an outdoor amphitheater. Home of the Creative Arts Council, the zinc-clad building provides spaces for interdisciplinary collaboration, connection and creativity. Activities are visible from the outside through the building’s glass-walled side. A green roof, along with other sustainable features earned the building a LEED Gold rating, Brown’s first for new construction.
