On the space front, the McMurtry Building, due to open in 2015, will allow the Department of Art and Art History to make better use of studio classrooms thanks to increased storage space. In Music, the piano studio (“small and cramped, resulting in a room crammed with pianos to the point of poor acoustics,” according to Rath) has recently received a substantial upgrade.
The Stanford Board of Trustees briefed The Daily on their latest meeting.
Construction will begin on schedule for the McMurtry Building, the new home of Stanford’s Art & Art History Department, in summer 2013. The structure is intended to invigorate the department and strengthen its presence on campus.
