SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The UI Museum of Art Envisioning Committee met Jan. 29 to discuss the report concerning the future of the facility.

The committee suggested three specific sites for the relocation, but the UI will explore other locations in addition to those in the report. David Bright, a committee member, said the three specific sites are near the current IMU parking ramp and Halsey Hall, east of the Lindquist Center, and on Burlington Street near the Mill, 120 E. Burlington St., which includes some privately owned land. A fourth location on the West Campus was eliminated because it was not consistent with the committee’s goal of a more central location.

Rod Lehnertz, the director of Facilities Management’ planning, design, and construction, the building could cost between $40 million and $50 million. How the funds will be raised has yet to be determined, but Lehnertz said a “vast” amount could come from donations.

The final report will be submitted to President Sally Mason on Tuesday for consideration.
