BGSU Magazine Winter 2012
A new heart for the arts
Gently emerging from the sloping earth that inspired its form, the $42-million glass and aluminum-paneled facility is sleek and angular in its contemporary design, making it unlike anything else on campus – and for good reason.
Named for Mary '68 and Fritz Wolfe of Perrysburg, who donated $1.5 million to the project, the Center will serve a panoply of purposes for the BGSU arts community.
"The Wolfe Center for the Arts offers tremendous opportunities for our students and faculty," said BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey, during the building’s official opening gala Dec. 9. "I am excited about what this building means for the arts at BGSU. It will attract students from all over the country."
