Friends of the Auditorium (FOTA), which supports efforts at Memorial Auditorium Performing Arts Center, received a $12,175 grant for the upgrading of the facility’s lighting equipment system. The upgrade will allow the system to support LEDs and a DMX infrastructure, both of which will enhance the auditorium’s lighting and special effects capabilities.
