College of the Canyons will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the 32,040 square foot, $10.7 million Mentry Hall expansion project outside the Mentry Hall Art Gallery on Wednesday, Sept. 8 at 2 p.m.

The expansion project, funded by Measure "M," a general obligation bond passed by local voters in November 2006, increased the size of Mentry Hall to 76,339 square feet by adding two computer labs, a large lecture room, 11 classrooms, a 2-D drawing classroom, a life/drawing classroom, two conference rooms and 12 offices.

The expanded Mentry Hall opened for classes on Aug. 23 at the start of the fall 2010 semester.

Klassen Construction Management was both architect and contractor for the project.

Mentry Hall houses the following College of the Canyons programs and activities:

* Media Entertainment Arts (formerly RTVF)
* Animation
* Architectural Drafting and Technology
* Interior Design
* Visual Art and Art History
* Photography
* Graphic and Multimedia Design

Speaking at the event will be Scott Wilk, president of the college's Board of Trustees; Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook, chancellor of College of the Canyons; and Dr. Floyd Moos, division dean of Fine and Performing Arts.
