Allan Hancock College celebrated the completion of its Fine Arts Complex on Friday.
The ceremony took place from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday evening at the college's Santa Maria campus. Administrators, students, faculty, staff, and members of the public attended the festive event, which began with speeches and a ribbon cutting.
College officials say this is one of the largest projects the school has taken on.
The 88,000-square-foot Fine Arts Complex has classrooms and office spaces for most of Hancock's fine arts and performing arts programs.
The complex also includes a 400-seat music venue, dance and music rehearsal spaces, art and pottery studios, and more.
