HRAC welcomes new executive director 

Katherine Marquette has been named the new executive director of the Hammond Regional Arts Center (HRAC). Marquette, the former Development & Donor Services Specialist of the Second Harvest Food Bank, was appointed executive director following a search led by the HRAC Board of Directors.

Marquette’s career in arts administration began back in 2006. She brings nearly 10 years of professional experience in visual arts and non-profits to the HRAC. She received her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from LSU and her master’s degree in Arts Administration from the University of New Orleans.

Art and Museum education and development have been the two primary areas of focus within Marquette’s professional career. For the past three years, she has been honing her skills in fundraising. In addition to her work at Second Harvest Food Bank, she has served as Cultural Program Analyst at the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Education Department Assistant at the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Membership Coordinator at McNay Art Museum.

“I love working in non-profit organizations and believe strongly in their ability to make the world we live in a better place,” said Marquette. “At the heart of a non-profit is a unique mission.  As the executive director, it is my duty to ensure that HRAC’s mission is at the forefront of every decision we make. Our mission is community driven. If we serve our mission faithfully, we serve the communities of Hammond, Ponchatoula, Amite, Kentwood, all of Tangipahoa Parish, and the greater Southeast region of Louisiana as a whole.”

The Hammond community is welcome to meet Marquette at HRAC’s upcoming Culinary Arts Series dinner on Monday, Aug. 10 and during Hot August Night on Friday, Aug. 14.


The Hammond Regional Arts Center (HRAC) supports, promotes, and coordinates visual, performing, and literary arts in Tangipahoa Parish and surrounding parishes. Our primary mission is to enrich lives through quality arts education, develop an appreciation of the arts within individuals, and introduce the public to professional exhibitions, performances and literature.

The Hammond Regional Arts Center is supported in part by a Decentralized Arts Funding Grant from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge in cooperation with the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and Louisiana State Arts Council.


Our sincere gratitude goes out to our many supporters! Special thanks to those who have shown support of our efforts to promote the arts.
