May progress

Unusually cold, wet weather continued into May, but there was significant progress made on Vol Walker Hall and the Anderson Design Center. The glass fins went up on the western side of the addition, plus more limestone panels. The fire stairs that connect the two buildings are also coming along.

Sustainable Arkansas tour

Attendees of the 2013 Sustainable Arkansas conference, hosted by the Arkansas chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, took a tour in early April, and we tagged along with them. The renovations to most parts of Vol Walker Hall were far along. The old second-floor gallery was filled with interesting scaffolding. And the studios, faculty offices and other spaces in the Anderson Design Center were taking shape.
