Shoreline Arts Alliance Director Eric Dillner is getting closer to having his dream come true.
Dillner and members of the arts alliance want to turn the Academy School Building into an arts and cultural center, the New Haven Register reports.
The 93-year-old building has sat idle since 2004, and there have been several studies undertaken concerning what should happen to the facility.
But momentum is building to have the facility turned into an arts space including arts and sculpting studios and room for the performing arts, the Register’s Sean Carlin reports.
Work includes adding an elevator, lead paint removal and upgrading the heating system. It’s expected that grants and donations would be necessary to make the project become a reality, the Register reports.
Plans may be finalized as soon as later this summer.
