Press Release |

Isidore Newman School, located in Uptown New Orleans, has just opened a new Performing Arts Building for students. The local school has a national reputation and has been open since 1903. Isidore Newman School is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational day school for children in early childhood all the way through 12th grade.

The Joy and Boysie Bollinger Performing Arts Building is a 5,500 square foot building that just finished construction this month. It was named after its benefactors who donated $3 million for the project. The entire project cost $6.5 million and includes two rehearsal rooms, three practice rooms, and the Bart Gallery. The Bart Gallery features student artwork alongside the school’s permanent collection and named for Cathy and Morris Bart, who also donated to the project.
