The Bangsberg Fine Arts Complex is named after Dr. Harry F. Bangsberg, BSU president from 1964 to 1967.
The building holds faculty and department offices for Music and Mass Communication. It is host to multiple music studios, classrooms, rehearsal rooms, and costume/scene shops. The historic building is also the home to a music technology lab.
Housed within the Bangsberg Fine Arts Complex, the Thompson Recital Hall, the main stage and black box theater provide Bemidji State and the surrounding community a vibrant calendar of musical and theatrical performances.
