3 The College of Creative Arts: A State of Minds Much like a painting or a musical composition or a play, the result of the hands-on education, inspiration, and training Creative Arts becomes a person who can see the world in a new way and bring what they see to the canvas, the stage, or the boardroom. As all equipment-intensive and facility-specific of any discipline at WVU. You can t study piano without a piano or ceramics without kilns or provided at the College of Creative Arts has disciplines and all careers become more closely the latest theatre lighting and sound without many layers, many meanings and as many related and cross-pollinated through technology, the latest theatre lighting and sound. Which 1 interpretations as there are students, faculty, and creative arts education teaches innovation, translates to a tremendous need for the power of audience members. It can be seen as exceptional resilience, cooperation, and a respect both for your generosity. preparation for a career in art and design, or tradition and for breaking with tradition. All are The student-centered education we provide music, or theatre and dance. It can also be seen skills and a State of Minds essential to 21st is deep and rich our pockets are not. This is as the ideal preparation for virtually any career in century achievement. our moment to innovate and perform together a global, speed-of-light economy that demands Beyond leading-edge education in the visual in service to our learning, cultural, and creativity, flexibility, and a calm, collaborative and performing arts, the College of Creative geographical communities. and assured stage presence to succeed. Arts is also committed to offering a wealth of Its numerous successful alumni in the opportunities for our local community and the visual and performing arts are a testament to people of West Virginia to engage with and be the College of Creative Arts reputation for engaged by the arts. Enriching quality of life is providing a first-rate vocational foundation for as much our mission as serving our students. its students. Not all art majors become artists, But none of this happens without your vital nor do all theatre majors become professional support. It may surprise you to learn that an actors but each graduate of the College of education in the creative arts is one of the most

4 The Trajectory of Success 2 As the premier university for the visual and performing arts in the state of West Virginia, we are committed to leadership and accomplishment in innovative arts education, research, and performance. The College of Creative Arts and the Creative Arts Center that houses it have become national and international resources noted for the exchange, creative collaboration, research, publication, and presentation of the arts. Today, some 800 students study, learn, and perform in three professionally accredited and widely recognized schools within the College: Art and Design, Music, and Theatre and Dance. The Creative Arts Center, which is home to the College, contains five performance spaces as well as classrooms, computer labs, movement and ensemble labs, shops for the creation of costumes and set designs, and visual arts, ceramics, and sculpture studios. We are blessed with one of the nation s best facilities in which to teach and learn but it is in need of expansion to take advantage of the academic challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Our global and national linkages are growing rapidly, from a partnership with the Pittsburgh Symphony to international programs in China, Italy, and Brazil. Some of America s bestknown artists, historians, and critics serve as visiting scholars at the College. Throughout the curriculum, we focus on hands-on, real-world education that enables students to intern and perform professionally as they work toward rewarding careers both in and beyond the arts. We dedicate our efforts as we will dedicate the results of your generosity to what directly impacts and assists our students future successes. With that in mind, we must expand our global connections, continue to support our best and brightest (outstanding students with endowed scholarships, outstanding faculty with endowed professorships), and provide the tools, spaces, and technologies that enable our learning community to excel.

5 As all disciplines and all careers become more closely related and cross-pollinated through technology, creative arts education teaches innovation, resilience, cooperation, and a respect both for tradition and for breaking with tradition.

6 Priorities for Tomorrow 4 The College of Creative Arts has identified a list of essential funding priorities that, with your vital support, will power our accomplishments in education and research in the coming decades. A State of Minds: The Campaign for West Virginia s University is the vehicle through which you can make a difference for students and faculty members as well as our state, national, and global communities. Advancing Education in the Arts while Engaging Our Community The Art Museum of WVU The Art Museum of WVU will create a broad range of initiatives for the University, the College, our community, and our region by providing a variety of educational programs, boosting the economy, increasing tourism, and improving the overall quality of life. The art museum will expand educational opportunities for WVU students while also serving as a cultural resource for northern West Virginia. While we have already obtained significant funding for the art museum, we must still raise $1,750,000 to underwrite its construction. A variety of naming opportunities within the museum are available, ranging from $25,000 to $1,000,000. Investment Total: $1.75 Million Ensuring Future Generations of Artists Student Enrichment Through endowed scholarships, travel funds, and library support, private donors can have a direct impact on the lives of individual students, assisting them to achieve their dreams of a career in the arts. This, in turn, will keep the arts alive for future generations. For a professional education in the arts, it is essential for students to perform throughout the state and nation, attend professional conferences and exhibitions, and travel for research and creative activities.

7 We are building an academic and creative engine to better serve our students, while enhancing the quality of life in West Virginia through art and performance. Endowed Student Scholarships...$1,000,000 Named Graduate Student Fellowships...$150,000 (one for each School, $50,000 each) Student Travel Endowments...$500,000 Library Electronic Media Enhancements...$200,000 5 Music Ensembles Travel/Competition...$100,000 Investment Total: $1.95 Million Means for Mentors Endowed Professorships The presence of highly esteemed faculty members helps to advance West Virginia University s reputation while attracting the most talented students to the University and the College of Creative Arts, thus enhancing an already thriving academic environment. The College must be able to attract and retain the finest professors and reward top faculty members for their teaching, research, and service. Additionally, endowed professorships provide resources that enable faculty to advance their scholarship and creative activity and build programs that can advance the artistic growth of our students. Our goal is to add four endowed professors by the end of this campaign. Music (2)...$700,000 Theatre and Dance (1)...$350,000 Art and Design (1)...$350,000 Investment Total: $1.4 Million

9 For any artist to be at the height of his or her abilities, they must be researchers first, studying sources, history, scripts, scores, and influences. A World Perspective on the Arts Assist faculty travel to international conferences specialized technological needs in the arts Enhancement of Global Education The arts are a force transcending humanmade boundaries. This initiative seeks private funds to enhance global education of students in the College through scholarship support to reduce the cost of studying abroad and to create international faculty exchanges. Global Education/Travel Endowments will be specifically earmarked for the internationalization of curricula and assisting students in attaining global perspectives in their work and prospective careers. Faculty International Exchange Endowments: Assist in the creation of faculty artist residencies at WVU and at partner institutions abroad Enable WVU main campus students to study with international artists and scholars Assist faculty in advancing international curricular goals Investment Total: $250,000 (individual endowments can range from $25,000 to $250,000) Global Education Scholarship Endowments: Assistance to students to help defray the increased cost of study abroad Investment Total: $250,000 (individual endowments can range from $25,000 to $250,000) Art in the Electronic Age Educational Technology Technology impacts the arts on an evergrowing basis. Updating our learning spaces to feature state-of-the-art electronic classrooms is an educational priority if we are to enhance professional instruction for students. Often, move beyond the usual expectation of a computer lab; the professional education of our students requires a mastery of those programs, equipment, and electronic media that comprise current (and future) professional standards in performance and education. Clay Theatre Modernization and Upgrades...$1,100,000 Electronic Media Upgrades...$600,000 Computer inventory replacement New software Photo, CAD, Intermedia, and Electronic Music Lab equipment Art & Design Equipment Upgrades...$200,000 Upgrades to ceramics and sculpture Film Production...$150,000 Investment Total: $2.05 Million 7

10 8 Practice, practice, practice! Improving Educational Spaces When asked the question, How do you get to Carnegie Hall? the great violinist Isaac Stern replied, Practice, practice, practice. For contemporary education in the arts, effective practice requires suitably equipped spaces. Even with recent upgrades to our performance venues, many of our educational spaces require renovation. The Creative Arts Center needs both endowed and operational funding to ensure that our students continue to learn in a facility that promotes creative thinking and education. Endowed support for educational spaces also ensures that students have the necessary tools to thrive in their particular area of study. Upgrade of Piano Inventory Steinway School Initiative...$4,000,000 Production Equipment Upgrades/Tension Wire Grid...$1,100,000 Upgrades to Davis/Falbo Theatres...$500,000 Lighting improvements Sound enhancements Communication systems Endowment for Future Upgrades to Music Practice Rooms...$250,000 Investment Total: $5.85 Million Endowed Naming Opportunities and Sponsorships: Theatre Series Underwriting Endowment...$100,000 Green Room Naming Opportunity...$50,000 Dressing Room Endowment... $25,000 each Community Outreach Underwriting...$10,000/yr.

11 We must expand our global connections, continue to support our best and brightest outstanding students with endowed scholarships, outstanding faculty with endowed professorships and provide the tools, spaces, and technologies that enable our learning community to excel.

13 The student-centered education we provide is deep and rich our pockets are not. This is our moment to innovate and perform together in service to our learning, cultural, and geographical communities. Transformational Opportunities The following opportunities are items envisioned as transforming the College, enhancing our academic profile, and ensuring future growth. Gifts directed to these opportunities would dramatically impact not only students and faculty for years to come, but also the people of West Virginia and beyond. Phase III of the Creative Arts Center: The Creative Arts Center is a wonderful facility serving the people it houses daily. Currently the Schools of Art and Design, Music, and Theatre and Dance are in need of more classroom, laboratory, and studio/ teaching space to expand their curricula and serve existing programs. Many items are tied to retention of professional accreditation. Additional performance venues needed are a 500-seat proscenium theatre to properly train actors and designers for the world of theatre, and a true music recital hall with proper performance aesthetics for both performers and audiences. College of Creative Arts faculty and staff are currently engaged in a program planning and cost estimate study for Phase III of the Creative Arts Center. Investment Total: $15 $30 Million Start-up Costs for Program Support and Endowed Professorships: An expanded curriculum is essential to bring the programs of the College of Creative Arts more in-step with its competition and with 21st century arts educational programming. Additionally, the programs listed below would serve the people of West Virginia through outreach via clinical practice, business practice, and enhanced performance opportunities. Investment Total: $1.5 $4.5 Million Costs of Planned New Curriculum and Programs: Art, Dance, and Music Therapy (BA)...$4,500,000 Dance (BA)...$1,500,000 Music Business and Technology (BM)...$1,500,000 Musical Theatre (BFA)...$3,000,000 Summer Theatre Programming...$1,500,000 Production Ceramics...$1,500,000 Investment Total: $13.5 Million 11

14 Boundless 12 Creativity is boundless, and so is an education in the creative arts. It can take a student to a specific destination: to become a graphic artist or a lighting designer or an oboe player, for example. Or it can open unknown worlds and reveal unimagined destinations. And if ever there was a future that calls for a boundless education centered on creativity, innovation, and assured performance, this is it. The College of Creative Arts is unique in combining service to students and their careers with offering entertainment and enrichment to West Virginia. This dual mission creates great responsibilities and great opportunities, and in order to answer the one and take advantage of the other, we need the power of your vision and generosity. Your gifts go directly to initiatives that have tremendous immediate benefits for our diverse group of inspired and inspiring students and faculty. The visual and performing arts in our community are strong and growing, and we need your help to continue offering the finest in arts education, research, and performance. Without that artistic vitality, the quality and pleasures of our daily lives would be much diminished. We emphasize hands-on, person-to-person education and training, and I welcome you as an integral part of that process. The arts are energized by their audiences arts education at WVU is energized by your hands-on, person-toperson involvement. I urge you to support the WVU College of Creative Arts through A State of Minds: The Campaign for West Virginia s University. The results, like the future, will be beyond anything we can imagine. Paul Kreider, D.M.A. Philip J. Faini/Falbo Family Dean
