CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Saturday night, Cambridge and Chesapeake College officials unveiled the new facade at the college's downtown Cambridge location.

The college says the facade was revamped due to suggestions from the community as to how they could improve their Race Street appearance, and showcase their programs.  The theme of the design ties into the schools new campaign "Your Time, Your Place."

"“Their suggestions included creating a day-time destination, increasing Race Street’s curb appeal and capitalizing on the 50’ of retail space to market our programs.” said Lucie Hughes, Vice President for Institutional Advancement.  She says along with the new facade, Chesapeake College will be participating more in organizations like Cambridge Main Street, and events like the town's Second Saturdays.

The improvements include a new awning, new window exhibits, and an enhanced entrance.  The four large pained display windows show the school's programs.  The new facade was designed by Chesapeake Communications and were installed by Chesapeake alum Jason Warfield, at Mid-Shore Graphics.

"“As President of Cambridge Main Street and a member of the Chesapeake College Foundation Board, I participated in the focus groups for the 50th anniversary planning and am very pleased that Lucie and her team heard our comments and decided to make a statement downtown," said Tom Hutchinson with Cambridge Main Street.

Along with the Saturday night reveal came a ribbon cutting at the new Legget Gallery, named after a department store that used to be on the property.  The inaugural display are 12 pictures by local photographer Jill Jasuta, who has done work for regional magazines and several local agencies like the Dorchester Center for the Arts.
