MADERA COUNTY – The Madera Arts Council will commemorate 30 years of promoting art and artists in Madera County with a community celebration Mar. 23. at the Hatfield Hall, Madera District Fair Grounds, from 6 to 9 p.m.
The evening is set to be a fun celebration of all that the Council and the county’s artists have accomplished over the last three decades, while also setting the stage for future growth.“Thirty years ago Nancy Clute, local artist and educator, gathered a small group of citizens together to begin planning for an arts council to promote the arts in Madera County,” said Julia O’Kane, president of the Arts Council. “Thirty years and still going strong with partnerships throughout Madera County, it is time to celebrate, acknowledge the work so far, and set the stage for the future of the arts in Madera County.”
“Madera is poised to be a destination art center,” says O’Kane. “The arts can enhance the quality of life in the community and also promote economic development. Come casual, come glitzy and be prepared to be entertained as you show you support for the arts.”
Tickets cost $75. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 559-661-7005.
