CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the Morrison Art Studio will be located in the basement of Morrison Residence Hall. The studio will be located on the ground floor. The story has been updated with the correct location of the Morrison Art Studio. The Daily Tar Heel apologizes for this error.
On the ground floor of Morrison Residence Hall, students can make art.
The Morrison Art Studio will officially open on Monday. The studio was created in partnership with Carolina Housing, the Department of Art and Art History and Arts Everywhere.
“The three partners involved wanted to provide a space where any student on campus could have access to a space to create art, no matter their prior experience, skill level or curricular interests,” said Carol Magee, chairperson of the art and art history department.
Allan Blattner, director of Housing and Residential Education, said Morrison Residence Hall was chosen for this project because security is a major concern for Carolina Housing.
