Preserving Historic Buildings

Performing Arts Center/Music Hall/Art classes

Transform the Art Deco building into a Performing Arts, Theater, and Fine Arts and Music Center. From what I understand, it already has an auditorium and would be perfect for community plays, and art and music learning/classes. We must preserve a place (preferably in historic Huntsville) for the arts and cultural learning. Engaging young people in the arts is the most important thing a community could do. There could be art, jazz, and acting classes. The Huntsville Community Chorus, HAL, the Tennessee Valley Jazz consortium, and others can all use this facility to engage youth in the arts, something that is losing funding in our schools, and utilize the Art Deco style for an artistic purpose. HAL is always looking for space for art classes and the Huntsville Community Chorus is always looking for theater space.
