A gift from Frances Shloss (B.Arch. ’45) is enabling the college to begin renovations on the third floor of East Sibley Hall. Shloss’s $1.3M gift allows the college to start construction this summer on new architecture studios and faculty offices, and replacement and enhancement of the skylights that extend the entire length of the floor.
“It is not often that you meet an alumna with such a continued commitment to the excellence of her alma mater,” says Dean Kent Kleinman of Shloss’s two most recent gifts. “Over the years, Frances has given to a variety of important projects that add to the beauty of the Arts Quad, including elm and redbud tree plantings, a terrace, benches, and a garden, and now she is giving to facilities that are at the core of AAP’s teaching and learning: studio space, faculty offices, and, of course, delicious food.”
