Since 2014, Algoma University has leased space for its visual fine arts program at The Machine Shop. The agreement has facilitated major growth for the program.
A lofty, beautiful space, The Machine Shop provides the University with the opportunity to further contribute to the increasing vitality of Sault Ste. Marie. This new facility will also establish one of the most distinctive fine arts centres in Canada, and will assist in the redevelopment of the Canal District. It will breathe a second century of life into this irreplaceable local landmark.
Moving the fine arts program to the beautiful Machine Shop building is a sign of positive and continued growth at Algoma University. This new facility will provide ample space for students to study and create works of art in an inspiring setting, but will also help recruit prospective students to study at such a remarkable facility.
