> An update for you all about our planned ceiling work — we are

> To recap:
> – The ITP Winter Show is on Dec. 17 and 18
> – ITP is closed to students on Fri., Dec. 19 (except those removing
> show materials off floor) though office staff will be on hand.
> – ITP Ceiling Project begins on Sat., Dec. 20 and is ongoing for
> the next 30 days.
> – NYU closes for Winter Holiday Break, 4 pm on Tue., Dec. 23 (no
> access to ITP until Jan. 5)
> – NYU reopens for business on Mon., Jan. 5, 2009
> – ITP will be open for business beginning Jan. 5 but with limited
> access as construction work continues.
> – Spring ’09 classes begin on Tue., Jan. 20 — work should be
> completed by this date and the floor returned to normal.
