Center gets nonprofit status; hires an adviser.

About two months after a board was formed to create a performing arts center at the World Trade Center, the institution has been granted nonprofit status and hired an adviser.

The Wall Street Journal (http://on.wsj.com/AytaYv ) says the former president of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council will serve as senior adviser to the board.

The president of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum foundation said Maggie Boepple's position will pave the way for her to take the helm of the organization.

Joe Daniels said Boepple will help the board with its missions so it can move forward on a design for the building.

The board was named in late December. It members include World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein.

The planned arts center calls for a 1,000-seat theater designed for dance.
