Current and former students are saying goodbye to a long-standing symbol of Brigham Young University.

The nearly six-decade-old Harris Fine Arts Center will be demolished in February. The BYU Board of Trustees approved plans to build a new arts center in its place last June. The new facility is slated to open in 2025.

The BYU administration understands how much the Harris Fine Arts Center means to past and present students, staff and faculty. The idea is the new building will provide proximity and more opportunities for collaboration and student mentoring. Ultimately, creating more magical memories.
