Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center
The City of Lake Charles is launching a new outdoor cultural series on Friday, November 13, as a way to showcase many of the brilliant artists and arts organizations in Southwest Louisiana. “Art 6-Feet Apart” will include a variety of art forms including theater, music and dance, as well as a poetry reading, a visual art demonstration, and virtual learning opportunities. The pop-up demonstrations will be held in a variety of downtown venues including Historic City Hall’s Plaza (1001 Ryan Street), Central School’s Plaza (809 Kirby Street), the Transit Center Pavilion (1155 Ryan Street) and Ten Pin Alley (behind 1910 Restaurant).
“Our area is rich in culture, and the arts have the power to bring us together and give us a shared hope for the future, and as we find ourselves preparing to wrap up a year that has brought us a global pandemic and catastrophic damage from two hurricanes, we can all use a little hope,” said Mayor Nic Hunter. “I’m pleased to announce that our local community of musicians, artists and nonprofits are providing some uplifting entertainment, in a safe, socially distant manner. Due to continued health concerns related to COVID-19, we’re being creative and planning these events in some of our underutilized outdoor venues.”
Barbe High School's Drama Club will conduct a theater performance on Saturday, December 5, at 5 p.m. at the Transit Center Pavilion (1155 Ryan Street) The performance will include highlights from 'Hairspray' and more.
All events are free for attendees, but pre-registration is required, as each event will be limited to only 50 in-person attendees to allow for social distancing. Registration can be completed at www.cityoflakecharles.com or by calling 337 491-9147. Each of the performances will also be streamed on www.facebook.com/historiccityhallartsandculture
