College of Fine Arts gets second million-dollar donation


Vermont College of Fine Arts has received a second $1 million gift from an anonymous donor in December, President Thomas Greene recently announced. With the gift, the college has raised $3.4 million toward its newly public $3.5 million capital campaign. The two $1 million gifts for the “Campaign for VCFA” are the largest in school history and will support the school’s continued growth as a national center for graduate arts education.

“This is the culmination of a lot of planning and hard work,” said Greene. “It is an exciting time for our school and community as we look to the future and undertake the first significant construction project on our campus since 1966.”

The campaign focuses on two primary projects, the renovation of an existing building to create an exhibition and performance center and the creation of an alumni and faculty center. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the summer of 2015.
