Chris Pavlik: The Last Hundred Years And Other Ghost Stories


We live in a world of ghosts. Ghosts are bits of history that repeat themselves, the past made present; sometimes they materialize as we watch, sometimes we just feel their cold presence around us. Some are summoned, some come unbidden. Some are as big as countries and wars, and others are so small they fit inside your heart.

Acadiana Center for the Arts

Acadiana Center for the Arts (AcA) is a publicly supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are the central cultural hub of Acadiana, an eight-parish region comprised of Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes. From our origins as an arts council established in 1975, we have transformed into one of the largest arts organizations in Louisiana. AcA’s public facility is in the heart of downtown Lafayette featuring an intimate theater, large museum-quality galleries, as well as workshop, rehearsal, and office spaces.
