Following the completion of a highly successful first season at the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts, Emory & Henry College hosted a gala on May 14, 2016, to thank the donors who helped make the long-held dream of an arts center a reality.
The Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts honors the memory of Buchanan County, Va. native and 1937 graduate of Emory & Henry College, who, as one of the founders of The United Company and long-time member of the College’s Board of Visitors, became one of the College’s all-time greatest benefactors.
The McGlothlin Center for the Arts is a $22 million, 47,367-square-foot state-of-the-art facility designed to meet LEED silver energy efficiency standards. It consists of a 461-seat proscenium stage theatre and fly system, a 120-seat black box theatre, dressing rooms, production areas, a modern art gallery, offices for theatre department faculty members and staff, and studios for the campus and community radio station, WEHC 90.7 FM. Construction began in 2013 and ended in 2015 with a ribbon cutting on October 16, 2015.
