UT to Rebuild Arts Studio into ‘Maker-Space’ to Foster Creativity and Innovation

Project will include digital fabrication lab (Fab Lab), photography studio and darkroom, high-tech classrooms and enhancements to Scarfone/Hartley Gallery

The University of Tampa will rebuild part of its Bailey Arts Studios on campus to host one of the most forward-thinking visual arts programs in the country, offering spaces for innovation and creativity amongst student and faculty inventors, designers, entrepreneurs and artists.

Most notably, the project will include construction of a digital fabrication lab (the Fab Lab) that will be an entrepreneurially focused, collaborative maker-space for students and faculty to turn their ideas and dreams into prototypes and products. The space will include laser cutters, 3-D printers, computer numerical control (CNC) routers, large format printers, vinyl cutters and state-of-the-art computer technology.

The project is set to be completed in the spring semester.
