Friends of Central School are seeking memorabilia or artifacts from the school to display at the Central School Arts and Humanities Center anniversary event 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 28. Items collected will be on display through the end of April and will be returned upon the event’s conclusion. They can be brought to Suite 202 in the center at 809 Kirby St.
Designed and built in 1912 by New Orleans architectural firm Favrot & Livaudais in the now historic Charpentier District, Central School now serves as a comprehensive arts and cultural center.
Upon entering Central School for the anniversary event, visitors will be greeted by docents who will provide free special tours of the building. The event will feature live music, an art exhibit highlighting 100 years of Central School and other surprises.
A limited number of pewter ornaments have been created to commemorate the cultural history of the facility. Proceeds from their sale will go toward the preservation of Central School.
For more information, call the Arts Council at 439-ARTS.
