David Adjaye Designs $21 Million Arts Center for Colgate University

Colgate University has received the go-ahead to construct a Center for Art and Culture in the village of Hamilton, according to Dave Tobin in

The twenty-one-million-dollar center has been designed by architect David Adjaye, and will have three connecting structures functioning as flexible galleries. A sculpture court and walkway will connect Utica and Madison streets to the site, which is across the street from the Colgate Bookstore.

Late last year, Colgate was awarded a $750,000 state Regional Economic Development Council grant for the project. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer, and works held at the Picker Gallery of Art will be moved to the new center once it is completed.
