Ludd M. Spivey Fine Arts Center


Named for late College President Ludd M. Spivey, the Ludd M. Spivey Fine Arts Center was finished in 1971 as a part of a five-year remodeling plan that also included the creation and remodeling of the Sigma Epsilon House, the Pi Kappa House, the Gilbert Gymnasium and the Ordway Building. While sections of the center had been previously completed, the Ludd M. Spivey Fine Arts Center as a whole officially opened during Founders Week on February 19, 1971. The center contains multiple areas including the Marjorie McKinley Music Building, the Branscomb Auditorium, and the Loca Lee Buckner Theatre as well as the William H. Melvin Art Gallery, the Martin Family Garden, Hester Plaza, and the Amanda and Harry Heeb Performing Arts center. The Ludd M. Spivey Fine Arts Center provides a space for the Fine Arts Department on campus including spaces for theater, visual arts, music, and dance.
