Pensacola State College has embarked on a $3M fundraising campaign to expand and enhance the PSC Visual Arts program building the Charles W. Lamar Studio at PSC’s Anna Lamar Switzer Center for Visual Arts. Over $2M of the capital expansion has been met though a lead gift and a match, $1M must be raised for the program’s endowment.

Case Statement

Years of research show that art education is closely liked to almost everything that we as a community say we want for our citizens: Academic achievement, social and emotional development, civic engagement, and equitable opportunity.

The Anna Lamar Switzer Center aspires to be the premier Regional Arts Center serving the Southeastern United States. The Center enhances today’s regional culture and produces tomorrow’s greatest talent in visual arts.

Since 2000, enrollment in Visual Arts courses at Pensacola State College has increased more than 142%. The Anna Lamar Switzer Center for Visual Arts is a teaching gallery with more than 64,000 guests visiting the gallery each year.
