Handsome Facility is a Katrina Comeback Story
Chalmette. LA: The St. Bernard Parish School District’s new Cultural Arts Center, serving both the community and the schools, had its grand opening March 18, 2011. The project goal was to create a multi-purpose building and performing arts theatre with 400 seats, including a fly loft and orchestra pit. There is also a 120 seat technology auditorium, music, and dance practice spaces, meeting rooms and classrooms. A key component is a library downstairs; the school library directly above.
