Facility Project Information

The college broke ground on the Fine Arts Complex in September of 2020. Funding for the Fine Arts Complex was provided by the voter-approved Bond Measure I, the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, and generous support from the estate of former Hancock faculty member Patricia Boyd. The facility brings together under one roof all the fine arts and performing arts programs that previously resided in multiple buildings across campus.
