Venture of Flames
A historical look at the Art-Psychology fire and the stories surrounding the building
“This building is the result of the efforts of many people. Mostly, it’s the fulfillment of the inspiration of our fellow students.” - Venture of Faith
The fire that ravaged the Valparaiso Art-Psychology building last month took away far more than just a physical space. It also scorched an indelible piece of Valparaiso’s history.
Long before the APB housed artists, musicians and psychologists, the building that rested in the shadow of the Athletics-Recreation Center was home to Valparaiso’s School of Engineering.
How the building came to be is just as breathtaking as the fire that claimed it.
