Improvements are now underway at the Grove, the green space bounded by the Moores School of Music, School of Theatre & Dance, Valenti School of Communications and the Fine Arts Building. The courtyard within the Fine Arts Building is also receiving improvements as an extension of this Arts District Landscape upgrade. The project will create a welcoming experience for visitors by designing well defined routes to the theater, increasing gathering space, adding way-finding signage, as well as improving lighting and the overall landscape. The improvements will help raise awareness of the various venues in the Arts District and will provide clear direction to first-time visitors.
