topping off
A topping off ceremony was held for the UCCS Ent Center for the Arts on Wednesday, May 4, 2016. The ceremony is held when the last beam of a structure is put into place during construction. A tree on the beam symbolizes good fortune in the centuries old Scandinavian tradition. The 92,000 sq. ft. building will include recital halls, art studios, art galleries, performance halls and other spaces used for the arts. The center is projected to be finished in January 2018.
