A&P agrees to $500,000 for university venue

A student crosses Garland Avenue before entering the temporary home of the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, as students prepare for the end of the fall semester. The school has been housed inside the former field house and future home of a planned performing arts center on the UA campus while work continues to renovate Vol Walker Hall, the school's traditional home.

Fayetteville Advertising and Promotion commissioners pared back a $1 million request from University of Arkansas Chancellor David Gearhart on Monday, voting instead to give the university $500,000 next year for an on-campus concert hall. Multiple commissioners said $500,000 was more consistent with how much tourism a 700-seat facility could be expected to bring.
