The Arts and Sciences Foundation has a new home. As of August 25, 2016, the Foundation moved into 523 E. Franklin St., former home of the Chapel Hill Public Library and the Chapel Hill Museum.

Built in 1966, the 13,000-square-foot building is located at the corner of Franklin and Boundary streets. The building was designed by Don Stewart (M.A. regional planning ’59), an area architect highly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright. Design firm Weinstein Friedlein Architects was brought in to renovate the building, and C.T. Wilson Construction Company was the renovation contractor.

Previously, the Foundation was located at 134 E. Franklin St.
