ASU's Glenn touts future of arts center

— Five months after the opening of a joint project between the Athens State University Foundation and Calhoun Community College, ASU’s president is excited about the Alabama Center for the Arts’ current and future impact on North Alabama.

Phase I of the new art building opened in downtown Decatur in October. The first phase represents a collaborative effort between the city of Decatur, Morgan County, Calhoun Community College and Athens State University.

The 44,000-square-foot, three-story facility, located at 133 Second Ave., in downtown Decatur across from the Princess Theatre, represents an investment of more than $8.2 million dollars ($3.2 from each educational institution and $800,000 each from Decatur and Morgan County).
