Description
Lawless Memorial Chapel, dedicated in 1955, honors The Reverend Doctor Alfred Lawless, Jr., founder of Beecher United Church Church of Christ in New Orleans and his son, Theodore K. Lawless, M.D. Theodore Lawless gained national fame as a renowned dermatologist and provided the funding for the Chapel and the Gentilly Gardens homes and apartments immediately adjacent to the building. Lawless is the largest formal assembly space on the Dillard University campus and is the official performance space for the Music Department. In keeping with these many uses, Lawless is now named Lawless Assembly Hall. It is the only building on Dillard's campus that did not suffer flood damage in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Currently undergoing renovation, Lawless is scheduled to re-open in the fall semester, 2008. Developed through the DigitalCUrrents summer camp - A collaborative outreach to urban youth by the University of Colorado and Computer Magnet program of Denver Public Schools. This building was modeled by Sarah Yoon, a CU graduate and Technology Arts & Media student.
