The June Freeman Lecture Series continues in its 2017/2018 series with a panel discussion entitled “The Windgate Center of Art and Design” presented by the building committee of the Windgate Center of Art and Design, to include, Tom Clifton, Dean of College of Arts, Letters and Sciences, Mia Hall, Director of Penland School of Crafts, Floyd Martin, Professor of Art History in the Department of Design, Carey Roberson, Chair of Department of Design and John Greer, Principal Architect with WER Architects. The Windgate Center of Art + Design, the result of a $20.3MN gift from the Windgate Charitable Foundation, is physically divided into two distinct architectural forms based on the distinctly unique use of the spaces. Both forms are connected and share common utilities and circulation patterns. The studio arts portion of the building is a 3-story structural steel framed building that houses classrooms, galleries, a lecture hall, departmental administration suite, and permanent collection storage that make up the visual arts program. The applied design area of the building is a single-story high-bay industrial-style space that lends itself to three dimensional forms of art.

The Windgate Center of Art + Design building is designed to have a strong community presence to help strengthen the various community partnerships that have been forged over the years. Access for gallery shows, art festivals and other events is an important component in the building design. Sustainable measures are fully integrated into the building orientation, exterior envelope and support systems to support energy and long-term maintenance efficiencies. The building will pursue LEED Gold and is currently being registered in the LEED

Certification program.
