What’s Up Your Arts Spring 2020

Save The Hall, Y’all Project: Updates

Phase 1 Feasibility studies on the re-purposing project are now complete. The UYA Board of Directors met May 9th to review the study results, and to consider what will be required in the next phase of the project.

Stay tuned for a formal email concerning the feasibility results and next steps!

Special thanks to Richard Bandera, of Bandera Architecture, for pro bono assistance in completing as-built drawings of the existing structure.
