Experimental Media & Performing Arts Center

RPI’s EMPAC houses a 1,200-seat concert hall and a 400-seat theater plus two multipurpose “black box” spaces that can be used for mounting performances and exhibitions by artists or conducting research by scientists.  It opened in October 2008 after about five years of construction and with a budget in excess of $200 million.  Read more about its genesis and purpose in my story for New Music Box, “At the Intersection of Art and Science.”
