University of Arkansas at Monticello Music Building – Monticello AR

Description

Originally the fine arts building, and now the music building.

"This structure houses the various fine arts departments of the college. On the first floor are the offices, recitation and class rooms, and a small auditorium seating 185. The second floor is given up entirely to recitation and practice rooms.

The building is semifireproof, the exterior walls being faced with random rock-faced stone ashlar trimmed with cut limestone. The plan permits of easy enlargement. The project was completed in May 1935. The construction cost was $94,856 and the project cost $105,897."

    I think there is another PWA building or two on UAM’s campus.

      There likely are. Do you have any access to materials, or the buildings themselves, to confirm this?
