BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Morgan Arts Council marks the start of its 30th year "getting art out there" with its hometown of Berkeley Springs firmly entrenched in the top 10 art destinations in America for small cities and towns.
Berkeley Springs was recently named No. 6 on the list, which is compiled by American Style magazine from votes cast by the public.
Berkeley Springs has been ranked as high as No. 12. Sante Fe, N.M. and Asheville, N.C., were rated first and second respectively in this year's poll.
"This is the fifth year Berkeley Springs has been nationally ranked," said Jeanne Mozier, local arts promoter. "No other West Virginia town made the list," she said pointing out that Berkeley Springs is also the state's first and only certified arts community.
