HOBT has recently received a financial gift that will allow it to begin transforming the aging and distressed building into a neighborhood art center. The plan is to condense HOBT’s programming down to 20 weeks per year of stage use, leaving 30 weeks to fill with arts programming and events that represent the cultures present in area neighborhoods. HOBT hopes to host live music, dance, theater, film, birthday parties, weddings and more in the revitalized building.
