The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, voted today (Wednesday, Dec. 4) to approve the naming of the Voxman Music Building, the University of Iowa School of Music facility slated for completion in 2016, in honor of longtime director and faculty member Himie Voxman.

The Voxman name over the years has brought recognition and respect for the state of Iowa, for the arts in Iowa, and for the UI. A native Iowan, Voxman committed his entire adult life to the university. He was on the faculty for 45 years, serving as director of the School of Music for 26 years, retiring in 1980. He passed away in 2011 at the age of 99.
