BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The University of Vermont is transforming what was once an elementary school into an integrated center for the creative arts.

The UVM Foundation announced Thursday that a $5 million gift from 1972 UVM graduate Michele Resnick Cohen and her husband Martin Cohen will be used to renovate the Elihu B. Taft School, located at the edge of the Burlington campus.

Work is underway on the project that will include galleries, studios, classrooms, and exhibition and performance spaces. The center will include disciplines of art, art history, dance, theater, music, film and television studies and more.

The Taft school served as a Burlington elementary school from 1938 until 1980.
