Eastern Kentucky University held a groundbreaking Wednesday for its state of the art center for performing arts.
The B&T Center is located south of the eastern bypass between Kit Carson Drive and Lancaster Road.
The 93,000 square foot performing arts center has a 2,000 seat theater.
EKU's President, Doug Whitlock, says the center will be key for propelling students into the performing realm of other universities.
The center is expected to be complete by summer of 2011.
