Shaw Center for the Arts Honors Charles Landry

The Shaw Center for the Arts recently recognized Fishman Haygood’s Charles Landry for his significant contribution in helping bring the Center to life.

The Shaw Center is a 125,000-square-foot performing arts venue, fine arts museum, and educational center located in downtown Baton Rouge. It includes the Louisiana State University Museum of Art, the LSU School of Art Gallery, the 325-seat Manship Theatre, classrooms, a rooftop sushi restaurant, office space for cultural entities, and a park.

Landry developed a “first-of-its-kind” public/private partnership structure to raise funding for the $50 million project. The partnership now serves as the model for future public/private partnerships in the State.

The Center honored Landry at its 10th anniversary gala on March 5.
