Morgan Arts Council to celebrate 30th anniversary

May 15, 2007

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - On Sunday at 4 p.m., the Morgan Arts Council (MAC) will celebrate its 30th anniversary of presenting and promoting the arts in Berkeley Springs and Morgan County.

The party, which gets under way at 4 p.m., will be at the Ice House, an art center in progress that has been home to the arts council since 1996.

"There is no argument that in the timeline of MAC accomplishments over the past three decades, the acquisition of the Ice House is the most significant," said Jeanne Mozier, MAC's founding president and a member of the board of directors.

"That's why, along with eating birthday cake, the featured activity on Sunday will be tours of new spaces for art activities at the Ice House," she said.

The public is invited to share the occasion with MAC members. "We plan only a brief business meeting to conduct our annual election," said Ann Harkins, current president. "Then it is on to partying and touring. We are really proud of all the work that has been done on the building."

Among the new spaces are a dance and movement studio on the second floor complete with wood floor, lockers and mirrors. By early June, classes will be available in a variety of dance styles from Friday evening ballroom dancing to international folk and modern dance.

The Ice House is on Independence and Mercer streets in downtown Berkeley Springs. For more information on MAC call 304-258-2300 or check online at www.macicehouse.org
