  • NEARING COMPLETION: Pulaski Tech's Center for Humanities and Arts.
Pulaski Tech announced today a $1.5 million gift from the Windgate Foundation to furnish and equip the Center for Humanities and Arts that will open in January.

It is the largest private gift the two-year college has received.

$1 million will go for musical instruments, art supplies, audio-visual equipment and materials for a sculpture park that will adjoin the building. The rest will be used as a challenge grant to create an endowment for building operations.

The 90,000-square-foot center will accommodate visual and studio arts, theater, music, English, speech and philosophy. It will include offices for staff and 30 faculty members as well as classrooms, art studios and galleries, music rooms and a theater.

Windgate was founded in 1993 with fortunes made in Walmart stock.
