Contemporary Studios For a 
Contemporary Native Arts Program 
IAIA recently unveiled plans for a new initiative:"Contemporary Studios for a Contemporary Native Arts Program." It has been launched to provide for upgrading and modernizing the Academic Building and the studios contained therein. The Academic Building, one of the oldest buildings on IAIA's Rancho Viejo campus, was dedicated in June of 2000. It houses what continues to be the core curriculum of the school: studios for ceramics, jewelry, photography, painting, and print-making; along with faculty offices, Artist-in-Residence studios, classrooms, and the Balzer Contemporary Edge Gallery, which hosts exhibitions of student, staff, and faculty artworks.
Since the building's opening almost 18 years ago, various upgrades have been occurred, but due to the age of the building there is now a need to replace or update equipment, furniture, work stations, lighting, flooring, power distribution, etc., for the studios, classrooms, and other rooms in the building. Upgrades will also include new rolling worktables, shelving, a new welding table and band saws, flat-screen monitors, a new pugmill, and refinishing of flooring. 
The projected costs for the program are expected to be approximately $300,000, which will not require a capital campaign to fund.
With the construction of a number of new buildings on the IAIA Campus over the last 18 years, the campus has emerged as one of the most attractive set of academic and student facilities in the region. The Library and Technical Center, The Center for Lifelong Education, The Barbara and Robert Ells Science and Technology Building, The Allan Houser Haozous Sculpture and Foundry, and the Residence Center have been constructed to define the academic center of campus.
