Campus Master Plan: Resident Construction Information

In September 2016, after more than 30 years of acquiring and re-purposing buildings to provide supportive shelter to artists and writers, the Vermont Studio Center broke ground on the first project in a 10-year Campus Master Plan that will result in comprehensive upgrades in sustainability, historic preservation, accessibility, safety, function, and comfort in each of our studio and housing buildings.


We have worked closely with our construction team to minimize disruptions to campus life throughout this renovation project. Construction will only take place during normal daytime business hours (weekdays only, beginning no earlier than 7:30am and ending no later than 5:00pm), and all of our campus spaces outside of the immediate construction zone will remain fully operational.


The first project in this Campus Master Plan is the renovation and historic preservation of our Kowalsky House (1896) & Annex (1834) for resident housing.

This project began August 2016 and will be completed in May 2017.

The second project is slated to be the restoration and preservation of VSC's Church Studios.


This project has a projected start date of June 2017.
