Salt Lake Community College will publicly unveil its new Center for Arts and Media on Thursday.
The $45 million addition to the south city campus, 1575 S. State Street, features a mass communication room, a music recording studio, a film screening room, a TV studio and more.
"No one has anything like this. It's the best one in the state," said SLCC spokesman Joy Tlou about the digital audio recording studio, which features a 64-channel digital solid state mixing board.
The school broke ground on the 130,000-square-foot project in January 2010 and finished it in August. It's an addition to the old South High School, which was built in 1931 and features art deco details on the exterior and lobby.
