"The dominant idea in the mind
of (Mr. Ackland) was the cause
of art in the South. He intendec.
that the site of his enterprise
should be a university, with its well
known accompaniment of students,
instructors, research and publica

Students at UXC will certainly
benefit from the facilities of the
center, which provides teaching and
creative space for the Department
of Art, formerly housed in Person
Hall and part of Caldwell Hall.
Many visitors from the general
public who come to enjoy art in ti e
years ahead will certainly fulfill the
dream of the Tenncssean.
