BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.VA. - More than 50 people came out Sunday to celebrate the group that has promoted the arts in Morgan County for three decades.
The Morgan Arts Council (MAC) celebrated its 30th anniversary at the Ice House on Sunday.
The crown jewel of the Morgan Arts Council is the Ice House and its community theater productions, gallery where local artists display their work, curated gallery shows and after-school programs, MAC board member Jeanne Mozier said.
Mozier said the council had its first meeting May 24, 1977, and several members are still participating with the council and with the arts. MAC began with 40 members and has grown to 400, Mozier said.
"MAC was 20 years old before we got our own space," Mozier said, when the Ice House building was donated to MAC in 1996 by U.S. Silica Co. in Berkeley Springs.
