​​​DENTON – The University of North Texas in Denton is building a 128,354-sf addition to the facility housing the College of Visual Arts and Design.

The $70 million project is expected to be completed by fall 2018. 

The university says the project will enable the college to house many more of its programs in one location. 

The additional space will include:
  • an 18,959-sf multipurpose courtyard, with landscaping and seating; 
  • a 2,267-sf rooftop dye garden which will supply plant dyes to the fibers department 
  • a new gallery with extensive back-of-house research and study space
  • 181 spaces for educational programs.​

The original main Art Building, with 82,546 sf of space, was constructed in the early 1970’s.

“This project will unite innovation with tradition and further establish that UNT has one of best art schools in the nation,” said Greg Watts, dean of the college.​
