Pierre Hecker, Assistant Professor of English, is "unbelievably excited about the prospect of moving into the Weitz Center for Creativity." The screenings of his Shakespeare on Film seminar in the building's new cinema will be open to the general public, just one sign of the increased community integration that the facility will provide. The new space will allow the teaching of a "living, breathing, up-out-of-your-seat" Shakespeare that goes way beyond what a regular English Department class can offer.

Carleton has announced that it is renaming its new Arts Union facility, scheduled to open September 2011, as the Weitz Center for Creativity. The renaming of the project, currently under way at the site of the former Northfield Middle School, reflects the contributions made by the family of Wally (’70) and Barbara (’70) Weitz, their children Katie (’96), Roger (’99), and Drew (’02), and their spouses Watie White (’93), Kate, and Meredith (’02) of $15 million towards the completion of the facility. The Weitz family is the largest single donor in College history at $25 million, as they also gave $10 million to launch Carleton’s Breaking Barriers, Creating Connections $300 million campaign, successfully completed this past June. Barbara and Wally served as the campaign’s co-chairs, and Wally has been a member of Carleton’s Board of Trustees since 2000.
