Transcript Three-Dart professor Paul Kittelson teaches his students the finer points of sculpting. Photo by Thad Reyes 3D Art Program Restructured... Music Department Gets New Digs James W. Pipkin, Dean College Humanities, Fine Arts and Communication. Photo by Mark Lacy This was the year that UH President James Pickering rescinded a proposal to phase out three popular academic programs. Pickering's decision to keep communications disorders, three-dimensional art and the human development laboratory school followed a summer of protests over a plan to eliminate them. The plan was part of a major restructuring effort. "The community demonstrated how important the programs are to them and the pro- gram directors came back with counter-proposals I found con- v i n c i n g , " Pickering said. The program directors were happy with Pickering's decision and said that they had already heard similar sentiments from many students and community supporters. The plans for the 3-D art phase-out had to do with space limitations and small enrollment. According to the Houston Chronicle, Pickering's restructuring advisory group recommended against phasing out any program primarily on the basis of a poor fit or lack of appropriate or adequate space until a thorough review was conducted. Three-D art was restructured as a sculpture program The new music building is expected to cost $18 million. It will house the band program as well as the Music Department. that includes classes in ceramics, jewelry-makingand metalsmithing. Sculpture officials are working to recruit more students and further develop connections with art communications. The 3-D art program will move into the fine arts building once the new music building is completed. And, speaking of that upcoming construction, UH presented its sketches for the new music building to the Board of Regents, Facilities Planing and Building Committee. The building, which is expected to cost $18 million, will be located directly west of the fine arts complex. One side of the new building will have an entrance facing Cullen, while another entrance will face the campus plaza. The front entrance will be primarily for people attending the building's 800-seat auditorium. Academic classrooms and practice spaces will be housed on the campus side of the new building. The auditorium's large performance stage will be used for operas and musical theatre productions. Tte band program will also move into the new music building, and the current band building will be demolished. The music department expects to begin moving into the new facility in December of 1995, with full usage of the building scheduled to begin in January of 1996. — Susan Spring Plan to Phase Out Program Phizzles m HRM/HFAC 81
