The Academy of Arts is a production structure located far western of the Westside. It was originally introduced on January 17, 2019 as part of the timed quest called A Journey to the Middle Ages.[1]

A total of 115 assets are needed to complete construction of the Academy of Arts. This is equivalent to 115 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
