Arts and Cultural Council of the Twin Counties

The members and board of The Arts Council believe that art is important to the life of a community and nourishes human development. Their purpose is to promote communication, cooperation, and mutual support of the arts in the Twin Counties; to serve as a liaison between the arts and businesses, government, and educational institutes and to provide educational services for and about the arts.

Our patnership with the Arts Council began with the first "Stories of the Stitch" quilt show 8 years ago. A unique show because the quilts are displayed on clothes lines in pastures. It's a beautiful site that people from several counties and even from other states come to see. In addition to the quilts, fiber artists in a variety of disciplines demonstrate their skills and then their wares at the show. There's something to do for people of all ages and always good food and good music that add to the festivities. Thank you Arts Council of the Twin Counties for helping our museum in the preservation of local art forms.
