The West Virginia Commission on the Arts of the West Virginia Division of Culture and History will host its annual public comment meeting from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
It will take place in the Great Hall of the Randolph Community Arts Center, at the corner of Park and Randolph streets in Elkins. The meeting is free and open to the public.
The purpose of the meeting is to give citizens the opportunity to address members of the commission and to make recommendations related to the arts programs administered through the arts section of the WVDCH.
Information can be presented to the commission either in writing ahead of time or in person at the meeting, said Jeff Pierson, director of arts.
Those who address the commission in person should limit their presentations to 10 minutes. Registration is not required; however, presentations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis until all the 10-minute slots are full. Interested parties are encouraged to call in advance to facilitate scheduling of speakers.
Individuals who plan to appear before the commission should submit their comments in writing at registration Wednesday.
For more information about the public meeting, directions or to register to appear, anyone interested can contact Pierson at 304-558-0240 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
