Pendleton West

lab room in Pendleton West

Pendleton West now houses studio arts, but it began life as a science building.

Named for Wellesley's first alumna president, Ellen Pendleton 1886, this academic hall was built in 1934. The word Chemistry was engraved over its main west entry, and as this 1968 photo attests, science still filled the classrooms in Pendleton West well into the 20th century.

Plans for its renovation will make it more amenable to the arts,  including a complete overhaul of existing space and an approximately 10,000 square-foot addition for both visual and musical arts, incorporating classroom, studio, and rehearsal spaces to accommodate emerging and traditional media.
