Ferst Center for the Arts
The Robert Ferst Center for the Arts, located in Atlanta, Georgia, is Georgia Tech's theater and arts center and is adjacent to DramaTech, the student-run theater. It contains a 1,155-seat auditorium that features a proscenium stage, orchestra pit, and theatrical lighting and sound systems.
The Center also features visual arts galleries for changing exhibits of contemporary art and photography.
The center opened in April 1992 with the name Georgia Tech Theatre for the Arts. It was renamed in honor of Robert H. Ferst, a Georgia Tech alumnus, following a $1 million donation by his widow, Jeanne Rolfe Ferst.
