The Eisner Foundation has awarded Denison University in Granville, Ohio more than $5 million to build a new performing arts building, which will be named The Michael D. Eisner Center for Performing Arts. Michael Eisner is a member of the Denison Class of 1964 and a Life Trustee of the college.

“The relevance of the performing arts in our individual lives and in society cannot be over-emphasized,” said Eisner. “The arts are relational. They can unite us across differences; they can give us new insights, and they should exist in an inter-disciplinary environment as in this new building. There has never been a time when the arts are more important than today. We are happy to support Denison’s commitment through this gift.”
