    (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) - Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) is receiving a $100,000 grant from the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation to help fund the Center for New Media (CFNM). The donation from the Foundation will be used specifically to help finish The Community Gallery for the Contemporary Digital Arts.

    The Community Gallery will house four unique spaces. A Community Art Gallery will showcase student, community, and professional artwork from around the Salt Lake valley. An enormous Arts and Culture Events Hall will be open to public gatherings, and will host many large-scale community and school events. The auditorium will feature a Digital Multiuse Display Gallery, a unique way to teach and display art. The Community Gallery will also showcase the Grand Theatre for large-scale productions for the entire community.

    “The Center of New Media will be the cultural and artistic gathering place for SLCC and the community,” said Rachel Colledge, Development officer at SLCC. “It was built custom to the needs of our students, including industry standard equipment, studios, theaters, and lab spaces. It will have an immeasurable impact on student and community artistic collaboration in the future.”

    The CFNM will add 140,000 square feet to the South City Campus, located at 1575 S State Street in Salt Lake City. The project is scheduled to be completed September 2013.

    CFNM Mission and Vision: The Center for New Media is SLCC’s home for the investigation of images, moving or static, documented or dreamed, composed or choreographed. It is the place where innovative education allows students to step ahead professionally. It is the point where the science of art, story, design, expression and communication are examined by students, promoted by faculty, supported by technology and celebrated by community.

    About the College: Salt Lake Community College is an accredited, student-focused, urban college meeting the diverse needs of the Salt Lake community. Home to more than 62,000 students each year, the College is the largest supplier of workforce development programs in the State of Utah.
