Louisiana Division of the Arts Visit

Dear Arts Organizations,

On Friday, Sept 20th, the new Executive Director of the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Cathy Hernandez, and her staff will be making a site visit to Lake Charles for an all-day experience of our arts scene and its partners. They want to meet area artists, arts organizations, sponsors, partners, and anyone who has a stake in Southwest Louisiana.

dharma barWe have a full day of tours for her, but since it’s simply impossible to visit every art space and organization, we have set up a cocktail hour from 4pm to 5pm at Dharma (located at 329 Broad St. in downtown Lake Charles). Everyone is invited to come meet Cathy and speak with her about your organization and your season, classes, performances, new initiatives, and so forth. We basically want to blow their socks off!

No formal RSVP is required, just come when you can! Paul Gonsoulin will be playing some live music, and Dharma’s bar will be open. We hope to see you there!
