The renovation and consolidation of two existing Main Street buildings in downtown Waterville create a new Arts Collaborative, providing vibrant arts programming and artists studios to benefit Colby students and faculty, and the broader community.
The ground floor provides flexible, creative space, including movable walls, seats, and risers for community performances and cultural activities such as art exhibitions, poetry readings, and musical performances. Designed to support both established and emerging artists, the second and third floors house flexible artist studio and maker spaces. The fourth floor houses Lunder Institute for American Art staff, affiliated scholars, and artist residents.
The exterior façade has large windows to allow for ample light and engagement off Main Street.
