Big news here in Staunton. Everyone who lives here knows that we are a vibrant arts community -- theater, art galleries, crafts, and music are all a major part of who we are (with, I like to think, a growing writer presence, as well). But visitors may not know this, and so the Arts Council has developed the concept of an Arts and Culture District, to be called the Red Brick District. Check out the brochure.
As part of the launch for the Red Brick District, numerous events are planned for the Arts and Culture Week that begins this Saturday, October 17. It's a very exciting development for Staunton. Thanks to the Arts and Culture Council (especially chair Erik Curren) for all the effort they've put into this!
