The Arts & Humanities Council of Southwest Louisiana will host our annual Gallery Promenade on Friday, September 29th, from 5PM – 9PM, showcasing SWLA artists in galleries, museums, and businesses throughout Downtown Lake Charles… and for the first time ever, Central School Arts & Humanities Center will be a stop on the tour! McNeese art students will be showing work downstairs (first art show since the building reopened!), Central School tenants will be hosting Open Houses, and there will be artists, musicians and vendors set up in the building. Come out and feel the creativity!

We are also hosting a supply drive for Calcasieu Parish (CPSB) Schools, specifically for items like facial tissue, paper towels, hand sanitizer, wipes, etc. School and art supplies will also be accepted. Those who donate to the drive will be entered into a raffle to win prizes donated by local businesses. (If you or someone you know has something you’d like to donate (goods, services, gift cards, etc., please get in touch!)
