Due to a significant electrical failure, WKU’s Ivan Wilson Fine Arts Center will be closed through Tuesday (April 1) with the goal of reopening Wednesday morning (April 2). Classes are cancelled, and offices are closed. The building will not have heat or lights during this period. The power outage will also impact the plumbing, and restrooms will be closed. While a generator will provide limited emergency lighting, the building will be completely dark if the generator fails.
As a result, any faculty, staff and/or students wanting access to the Fine Arts Center should be there only for very brief periods and for absolutely necessary reasons. The WKU Police will walk the building regularly and will ask to see the WKU ID of anyone in the building.
