Staunton Annouces Arts and Culture District

Staunton's new Arts and Culture District will be officially launched on Saturday, October 17. The City of Staunton and the Arts and Culture Council of Staunton are planning a joint news announcement next Tuesday, October 13, at 11 am to be held at the RR Smith Center in Staunton. In attendance will be city officials along with representatives of the arts and cultural community in town.

We will send out information about the culture district launch shortly. Meantime, in a related story, today Virginians for the Arts put out the attached news release on the economic impact of arts and culture in the Valley, mentioning several local groups including the American Shakespeare Center.
