THE MCEWAN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE OPENS ITS DOORS FOR NUIT BLANCHE
Over the past few years Sudbury has seen a revitalization in the downtown core. New businesses have set up shop, older businesses have seen more excitement and popularity. A key role in this new age of Downtown Sudbury is the newly completed McEwen School of Architecture – the big glass housing structure attached to the old marketplace has become a symbol of change and prosperity in Sudbury.
Earlier in June of 2016, Rob and Cheryl McEwen invested $10 Million in Laurentian University’s School of Architecture. At that point, the structure was starting its final stages of construction. It’s exciting to think that this revitalization is finally done! And just like the average university student, it only makes sense to party and celebrate when the job is done.
The McEwen School of Architecture houses a rich array of students that are constantly showcasing their talents – have you seen some of their Instagram accounts? To celebrate the completion of downtown structure and the talents of the students there will be an Grand Opening on January 19th including a Nuit Blanche event starting at 7:00 PM.
Included in this event will be tours of the facility and the new open concept learning environments, art and visual displays created by local organizations and Laurentian students, and entertainment. The event has been extremely well received and gained the support of not only those directly involved with the McEwen School, but with a variety of community groups. Spectators should look out for an array of student, faculty and community light, wood-based, multimedia and interactive installations. The evening will also feature student performances to further showcase the talent the McEwen School has. From interior to exterior exhibits the McEwen Nuit Blanche will surely be a delight to all who attend and be a success of an evening. This is the first ever Nuit Blanche held by the McEwen School of Architecture. Built upon the same principals of other all-night art exhibitions held worldwide, it is a chance for talented Sudburians as well as commuting students to make their creativity and wide range of skills known.
I’ll be taking over the Our Crater social media (@OurCrater) for Nuit Blanche so if you can’t make it out, you can see all the fun on there!
