Since its unveiling, the Massry Center for the Arts has been hailed as a Capital Region treasure—a creative showcase not only for the Saint Rose community, but for distinguished artists, musicians, vocalists, and orchestras from around the world. Its 46,000 square feet include, among many other features:
- The acoustically superior Kathleen McManus Picotte Recital Hall and other concert spaces, which host a full slate of musical performances: orchestral works, chamber music, Latin jazz, zydeco, and more
- The Esther Massry Gallery, with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows illuminating exhibits in painting, sculpture, illumination, and other media
- 21 soundproof practice rooms in the William Randolph Hearst Music Wing
- Smart classrooms throughout the Center
Mirroring the Victorian administration building next door, the Massry Center was designed to meet the second highest rating of the United States Green Building Council: the LEED Gold standard. The geothermal heating and cooling help make the Center 48 percent more energy-efficient than a comparable, conventionally constructed building.
