C.J. Rodman Center for the Arts

C.J. Rodman Center for the Arts was named for Clarence J. Rodman ‘13, an Ohio industrialist. It is located west of Union Street, south of Congress Street and north of Thorne Street, and is directly across from the J.M. Storzer Athletic Center. Rodman has 52,400 square feet of space, housing the Theatre, Art & Art History and Music departments. It includes Demmer Recital Hall and Benstead Theatre, sound-proofed practice and listening rooms, a music library and resources room, a multimedia center, a recording booth, art studios, rehearsal and dressing rooms, faculty offices, and classrooms. The lobby serves as an art gallery and has display vaults for two large Van Dyck paintings donated to the College by Mrs. Lillian Rojtman and the Marc B. Rojtman Foundation. In the summer of 1982, a Bedient tracker pipe organ was installed in Demmer Recital Hall.
