Rebirth in Olde Towne





What was once the business of Slidell Cleaners
will soon become an art center.

After flooding in May 8, 1995, and recovering, 10 years later
Katrina came along and flooded them with 10 feet of water.
Now they will transform the destroyed business into the Olde
Towne Art Center, an art gallery to provide a place for an
artists' co-op to learn, to teach, and to sell what they create.

Follow-up plans will involve creating spaces upstairs for
artists to rent as studios and provide large class teaching
space.

The Olde Towne Art Center should be completed by the
beginning of November, 2007
