Arts District

The Arts District includes long-term plans to open Ohio State’s front door to the heart of the University District at 15th Avenue and High Street. The project, sited between 15th and 18th avenues, envisions high-quality, modern learning environments for interaction across arts disciplines. Included are new facilities for the School of Music (Timashev Family Music Building) and Department of Theatre, Film, and Media Arts. The $165.1 million project includes both renovation and expansion to the School of Music building and construction of a new Department of Theatre, Film, and Media Arts building. The project also includes work to enhance roadway and pedestrian access. For a closer look at the project, visit the College of Arts and Sciences website.
