A former church near Mercer's campus is about to become a community arts center.

Mercer president William Underwood made the announcement today at the old Tatnall Square Presbyterian Church.

That's at College and Oglethorpe Street.

The church will also be renovated as a theater and become home to Mercer's theater department.

A $425,000 grant from a group called ArtPlace America will pay for the project.

Jennifer Moulliet was at that news conference and will have more on Eyewitness News at 5 and 6.
