Founded by philanthropist Harry Gabriel, Twin Steeples Creative Arts Center will bring the arts to Ponchatoula with a first class facility while preserving the legacy and history of its two buildings in perpetuity.
It will become a multidisciplinary arts organization that is dedicated to expanding the cultural and creative opportunities for Ponchatoula and its surrounding area.
Its strategic goals focus on programming that celebrates the local artists and provides a window to the world.
Twin Steeples Creative Arts Center will include two historic buildings: churches originally owned by the Lutherans and the Presbyterians from their humble beginnings over 100 years ago.
These will provide for intimate gatherings, exhibits and performances. Larger assemblies can overflow onto a plaza connecting the two.
While the primary focus will be for promoting the arts in our immediate area and in Louisiana, it will also be available for neutral public gatherings and civic use.
On a very limited basis, the venues will be available for rent to help defer a portion of the expenses.
501(c)3 status is pending which means all of TSCAC donations will be tax deductible retroactively. Funds are being raised for start-up, construction, and maintenance expenses.
