The Ford Center for Fine Arts houses a black-box studio theatre, a large-scale production theatre, and two recital halls, along with art studios that are used for ceramics, sculpture, painting, and printmaking. After receiving a $5 million gift to build a new art and art history building, Knox is currently finalizing architectural plans for this new academic building. The College will break ground in the spring of 2015 and will be open for students who arrive in fall 2016. Green Oaks Biological Field Station, located 20 miles from the main Knox campus, is 700 acres of tallgrass prairie, old growth oaks, second-growth oak-hickory forest, lakes, and streams. The facility is used by faculty and student for research and is home to Green Oaks Term, an interdisciplinary exploration of life in a community that is fully integrated into its natural surroundings. The Knox Farm features two high tunnels and a community garden that is used for academic purposes and provides local produce for campus use. The recently renovated Alumni Hall recognizes the key role that experiential learning plays in the education of every Knox student by bringing together all of the centers that support experiential learning, including the Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study, the Stellyes Center for Global Studies, the Kleine Center for Community Service, and the Bastian Family Career Center. It also will house the Offices of Admission & Financial Aid and Alumni Relations and the Whitcomb Heritage Center. The renovation preserved the historic envelope of the building, while creating a contemporary, technologically advanced, LEED-certified space for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
