St. Catherine's officially broke ground for the new Arts and Innovation Center last week. Because of the pandemic, the celebration was scaled back to a small, recorded event.
Interim Head of School Lila Lohr was joined by Board Chair Macon Clarkson '96 during the socially distanced event. Freshmen Camryn Gardner, Kathryn Price, seventh grader Virginia Dean, sixth grader Finley McElhaney, fourth grade Georgia Towsend and first grader Ruth Mathenge all participated in the event along with Arts Coordinator Kendall Neely.
The AIC will feature a 550-seat, two-story theatre with tiered side balconies; 56' Flytower to accommodate stage sets for flexible usage; three lighting catwalks, state-of-the-art acoustics and dedicated control booth; scene shop and Creativity Lab; expansive light-filled lobbies and flexible spaces for art galleries, wellness activities and community gatherings.
