Historic City Hall  Arts & Cultural Center
1001 Ryan Street
Lake Charles, Louisiana

After extensive restoration, Historic City Hall opened its doors as the City of Lake Charles' public art gallery and cultural facility in 2004. Since that time, it has showcased numerous traveling exhibitions from around the world, as well as regional and local artists. Under the direction of the Cultural Affairs Department, the Center features three floors of gallery space (including Black Heritage Gallery and Gallery by the Lake), a clock tower, and a landscaped brick courtyard. Numerous traveling exhibitions have been shown here including Pablo Picasso, Ansel Adams, Norman Rockwell, and Tasha Tudor. One of the most visited exhibitions was Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, featuring over 100 carefully preserved artifacts from the historic vessel. Visitors from across the country are surprised to find such high-caliber exhibitions in the Lake Area.  
Historic City Hall Arts and Cultural Center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission to all exhibitions is free to the public. For more information, please call (337) 491-9147 or e-mail artsandculture@cityoflc.us
