The Hoogland Center for the Arts has recently been completely renovated. I had my wedding reception there. It is a beautiful facility on its own, but it is made more beautiful by the life is has brought to downtown. There is a constant stream of people - young and old, rich and poor, black and white - going in and out of the facility for dance classes, theater practice, music recitals, lectures and who knows what else. The facility is wonderful and the staff are very kind and helpful.
