Moving the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts into its new home in downtown St. Catharines is like conducting an orchestra. Except instead of one person guiding the team, there are many conductors each with their own important role.
Today marks the official start of move-in for the Faculty of Humanities departments that will call the new campus home beginning in September.
Moving all of their specialized equipment and instruments are the departments of Dramatic Arts, Music and Visual Arts, and the Centre for Students in Arts and Culture, which spans all of the departments.
The big move will take place until the afternoon of Tuesday, June 30 with repeated trips of three 34-foot moving trucks and a specialty piano truck.
Some of the many items being moved over the next week:
130 garment boxes
17 upright, grand and electric pianos
60 boxes of music scores
36 painting easels
67 photographic enlargers
35 photo and video cameras
1,000+ moving boxes
1 green screen
1 printing press
