McMaster arts community gets first look at Fitzhenry Studios and Atrium

Just a year after ground was broken on the construction site, McMaster has officially opened the Dr. Robert & Andrée Rhéaume Fitzhenry Studios and Atrium. The studios and atrium will increase existing classroom, studio and display areas by more than 1,700 square feet. They were made possible thanks to a $3M gift from alumnus Robert Fitzhenry in honour of his late wife Andrée, who was an accomplished painter specializing in landscapes. The gift is the largest ever donation to the Fine Arts program, and the Dean of Humanities describes the new space as “the single most powerful learning tool the School of the Arts has ever had.”
