Constructed in 1989 and renamed after philanthropist Anthony "Tony" Misciagna in 2006, the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts contains the 400-seat Paul R. and Margery Wolf-Kuhn Theatre, a music classroom, two visual art studies studios, faculty offices, a Macintosh computer lab, and three conference rooms. The lobby area of the building also houses the McLanahan and Sheetz Art Galleries and the Titelman Study. The Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts hosts cultural and performing art series and theater productions, as well as special events throughout the year. The Center is the home to many faculty of Penn State Altoona's integrative arts and visual art studies degree programs, as well as the college's dance studies minor.
Anthony "Tony" Misciagna
Anthony "Tony" Misciagna committed $1 million in 2006 toward the expansion of the former Community Arts Center, which was renamed the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. The retired Hollidaysburg stockbroker's gift afforded the college the opportunity to expand the facility to include a dance studio and vital theatrical spaces, including a set-building shop.
