Renovation and Capital Campaign 2013
WE HAVE TRANSFORMED OUR CENTER!To celebrate our 40th anniversary this year at ACAC we embarked on a major campus renovation and Capital Campaign, establishing a pathway for growth by manifesting a critical and much-needed step in solidifying our future. Beginning with 8,000 square feet of the main public areas, Atlanta architects Brian Bell and David Yocum of BLDGS BLDGS transformed the Gallery, Lobby, and Resource Room spaces, and created a new Lecture Hall. The result honors its roots as an industrial space while illustrating ACAC’s history through architecturally relevant, contemporary design.
This project was made possible by a $600,000 Capital Campaign led by ACAC Board President Tim Schrager with the generous support of foundations including the Atlanta Foundation, Ron & Lisa Brill Charitable Trust, Lettie Pate Evans Foundation, Aaron & Angel Goldman Foundation, Massey Charitable Trust, Rich Foundation, Tim & Lauren Schrager Family Foundation, Tull Charitable Foundation, Vasser Woolley Foundation, WISH Foundation, and Woodward Fund. Individual donors also raised significant funds for the campaign including Lana Cavassa, Steven Chan, Jeff & Debbie Chapman, Louis Corrigan, Gene & Nancy Hooff, Baxter P. Jones, Dean Nations, Tim & Dawn Severt, Jonathan R. Shils, Lee & Dawn Walker, Marcia Weber, and Chris & Elizabeth Willett.
The renovated ACAC offers:
- A new Lecture Hall and Event Space for educational programs and social gatherings
- A redesigned Lobby, Reception areas, and Restrooms to meet the needs of our visitors
- A redesigned Resource Room with natural light, with new publications and media
- New energy-efficient HVAC and lighting systems
