A special day for Pittsburg State University and the Community...

More than 1,000 gathered at Pittsburg State University’s new Bicknell Family Center for the Arts to cut a ceremonial ribbon and tour the $33 million hall this past Sunday. 

“More than anything, this day is a celebration of the spirit of this institution and this community,” said PSU President Steve Scott. “Without the support of our students and donors and the incredible work of our campus faculty and staff who helped design this beautiful structure, this day would have never arrived.”

The large gallery in the Bicknell Family Center of the Arts still has some steps to completion, but Chairperson and Museum of Art Director, Rhona McBain said, " We are ecstatic that this day has arrived. It will be a cultural and economic transformation for the community of Pittsburg. We are looking forward to our first exhibition in the new space. We are grateful to President Scott, Mr. Bicknell, the current donors and those that will step forward in future. It is truly a whole community bring our dreams to reality."
