Barbour County Arts and Humanities Council Inc. meeting scheduled
The Barbour County Arts & Humanities Council will host a joint meeting with the Mountain Arts District (MAD) at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17 at the Philippi Public Library.
Mountain Arts District serves as an online host and directory to artists and art venues. Its purpose is to promote the unique arts and culture of north central West Virginia, spanning the counties of Barbour, Pocahontas, Randolph, Taylor, Tucker and Upshur counties. MAD was formed by a collective group of volunteers to strengthen the arts economy, establish the area as an arts destination for tourists, and increase the development of public arts.
Judy Buckner Larry, president of the Barbour County Arts and Humanities Council Inc., stated, “In addition to the regular Arts Council meeting, we are meeting with people from MAD so that they can provide information to Barbour County artists, musicians, performers and others about the services available through MAD. We are also looking to revitalize the Arts Council and to seek additional membership.” The Barbour County Arts and Humanities Council Inc. is a non-profit organization that was generally organized “for educational and cultural purposes.”
Anyone interested in finding out additional information about the Arts Council or MAD should attend the meeting. If you have additional comments or questions, call Larry at the Philippi Public Library at 304-457-3495.
