NC Arts Board Of Directors To Visit Boone, Watson Mural Work Begins This Week

The NC Arts Council has selected Boone as their bi-annual board meeting destination.

The Board of Directors is comprised 24 governor-appointed members from all over the state of NC, and the Watauga Arts Council has been busy coordinating with partners and preparing for their visit.

The Appalachian Theatre of the High Country will be hosting the meetings in its community room. The Turchin Center will host a pop-up gallery that will showcase the
artwork of the Artist Support Grant recipients.

The BOD members will get to see a variety of artistry from the High Country while seeing first-hand the impact of the NC Arts grants that the Watauga Arts Council administer.
