Gearan Center for the Performing Arts at Hobart and William Smith Colleges
On April 25, 2014, the Hobart and William Smith Colleges broke ground on the new Performing Arts Center, starting the construction phase for the 65,000-square-foot facility. The three-story Center will provide academic and performance space for the departments of music, dance, theatre, and media and society. Although originally planned as a metal roof, it was later changed to a genuine slate roof for its beauty and durability. Greenstone Slate Company provided 300 square feet of roofing slate for the project. Slate colors selected were Vermont unfading green, mottled green purple, and unfading purple in standard thickness.
