Michele and Martin Cohen Hall for the Integrative Creative Arts

Michele and Martin Cohen Hall for the Integrative Creative Arts - University of Vermont

To meet the need for additional classroom and studio space for UVM’s growing range of arts programs, the College recently completed renovation of the former Elihu B. Taft  School in Burlington. The new Michele and Martin Cohen Hall for the Integrative Creative Arts was funded through several gifts totaling $7 million from Michele Resnick Cohen, UVM ’72, and her husband Martin Cohen. The facility includes art studios, classrooms, critique spaces, a gallery, an audio recording studio and a dance studio. A digital media lab, production studios, and equipment lending for digital art and film classes support exciting collaborations between the visual and performing arts.
