      CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON NEW BEAM MUSIC CENTER
      Construction has begun on UNLV's new Lee and Thomas Beam Music Center, located along Maryland Parkway on the campus' northeast corner.

      The $7.3 million privately funded project is another product of the university's longtime partnership with the Beam family of Las Vegas, according to UNLV President Carol C. Harter.

      "UNLV students are extremely fortunate that the Beam family has supported this very important project for the College of Fine Arts," said Harter. "Like Frank and Estella Beam Hall, the Thomas T. Beam Engineering Complex, and the Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery, this new facility will be a tribute to an outstanding Las Vegas family that really understands the importance of quality higher education. Our music faculty has worked closely with Holmes Sabatini Architects to design a facility that will begin a new era in fine arts education at UNLV." [4]
