Huss Center for the Performing Arts
This spectacular building is the new addition to the school in which I used to teach that was an integral part of my world for 30 years before retirement. Occasionally I visit to have lunch with former colleagues and to attend art exhibits in the school's gallery. The new auditorium shown above is a beautifully designed feature that already has become a part of the community. The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra has performed several Sunday afternoons in this space, events which have been very well-received by the community. If you look closely you can see students artwork gracing the walls of the hall leading to the auditorium. Because I did not take a photo of the auditorium, I decided to show you one of the pieces of art, among the many that I enjoyed seeing when I went to the concert last Sunday. This particular piece was the work of a 9th grader.
