Grand Opening of Cary Saurage Community Arts Center
MPAC (Music, Performance, Art, Community) will showcase visual and performing artists throughout the evening and introduce the 12,000+ square-feet of workspace, reshaped to serve artists and arts education. Event guests will experience the state-of-the art community center during the celebration with showcases of visual artists, musicians, makers, culinary and performing artists presenting at MPAC.
The Cary Saurage Community Arts Center, the first of its kind in the Capital Region, will meet the growing needs of Louisiana artists and arts educators with an arts education center; two-story, open exhibition gallery; accessible rehearsal, meeting, class space, and conference space; and outdoor rooftop terrace to allow for community gatherings. The new center’s open studio spaces, black box studio, and audio-visual studio gives a home for artists to create demos, rehearse new works or show works in progress in one building, providing a place for artists to create or expand their repertories in all forms.
