Built in 1975, the Rose Lehrman Arts Center at HACC is a 379-seat theatre facility. We boast fully accessible, intimate theatre performances where no seat is more than 45 feet from the stage. The Rose Lehrman Arts Center was the last building to be constructed in the HACC Harrisburg Campus’ 10-year master plan. When it was finished in 1975, it was the first multidisciplinary arts center in the region.
Who was Rose Lehrman?
At the dedication of the Rose Lehrman Arts Center at HACC in April 1975, Lois Lehrman Grass, daughter of Rose Herman Lehrman, said that her mother instilled the love of the arts and the duty of civic service into her children.
“Rose Herman Lehrman was an exquisite woman, not only in appearance, but in her manner and personality. She would be more than pleased to see her name attached to this great space…”
Rose Herman Lehrman passed away in 1968. An oil portrait of her by Ben Solowey is prominently displayed in the lobby of the Rose Lehrman Arts Center.
