ELKINS – Workers remove the fascia and canopy at Myles Center for the Arts on the campus of Davis & Elkins College in preparation for new construction of the two-story brick rotunda and 6,000-square-foot glass enclosed addition. Structural steel, foreground, arrived this week and will be erected in the near future. The scaffolding in the background shows workers preparing the shaft for the new elevator. The $6.7 million renovation, funded by D&E Trustee Emerita June Myles, also includes a transformation of Myles Plaza into a destination gathering space with curvilinear lines inspired by musical influences, walking paths, grassy areas and tiered seating that can be used as an outdoor classroom. The project is scheduled for completion this fall.
