About 250 people attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning for the new arts center on Alexander Street. The new center is named in honor of donor Peter Lewis, a member of Princeton’s Class of 1955 and a former Princeton University trustee. The 145,000-square-foot complex on the south edge of campus anchors a 22-acre development that includes two restaurants, a Wawa convenience store, and the new Princeton Dinky train station.
