Northfield Mount Hermon Rhodes Art Center

As part of Northfield Mount Hermon School’s plan to consolidate onto one campus, the Rhodes Arts Center brings all aspects of the visual and performing arts to one centrally located venue. Located on a sloped site in the center of campus, the architects have incorporated a sense of a Main Street experience that traverses all three levels of the building. This 63,000 square foot complex includes a full concert hall seating 400, an end stage theater with full operating equipment, and two dance studios – one of which is outfitted as a black box theater. The visual arts program includes all disciplines such as ceramics, painting, sculpture, and digital and wet lab spaces to support the photography program. Construction also included practice spaces, choral rooms, faculty offices, and educational spaces for the visual and performing arts spaces.
