Governor Wolf Art and Culture Athenaeum Project

Students and faculty are collaborating with community organizations and residents in Lafayette’s home city of Easton to discover new possibilities for the arts and cultural scene.

They are analyzing the economic impact of targeted investments in the arts, culture, and tourism and investigating the positive economic renewal and cultural benefits of a creative arts corridor extending from the Governor Wolf Building to Lafayette’s Williams Visual Arts Building on North Third Street, and along the Bushkill Creek to the former Simon Silk Mill property on North 13th Street.
