Voices of Bowdoin

Dean Cristle Collins Judd describes how music, art, learning, and athletics interconnect in Bowdoin’s transformed cultural spaces—including the newly completed Studzinski Recital Hall, Kanbar Auditorium. The former Curtis Pool building features a stunning, acoustically sophisticated 280-seat concert hall and state-of-the-art practice rooms, where student and professional performers alike are reaching new levels of excellence.

This challenging $15 million project is part of Bowdoin’s commitment to bringing world-class arts and culture to the College community and the region. Other completed projects include the renovation of the 610-seat Pickard Theater, construction of the 150-seat Wish Theater, and renovation and expansion of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, home to one of the most historically significant college art collections in America.
