2013 in art and culture: Organizations, events enhance area livability

Published: Thursday, January 2, 2014 at 05:23 PM.

More than two dozen countries representing five continents presented cultural displays and performances in Shoal River Middle School's gymnasium in a colorful evening of fun and festivity.

Students from Shoal River Middle School and the school district's English for Speakers of Other Languages program contributed research and set-up assistance as they learned about other cultures.


Masterpieces from area artists — some exhibiting for the first time — filled lobby display cases and covered the library's exhibit wall.

Programs including monthly First Tuesday lectures, special presentations and crafts instruction for children enriched the community's cultural life.

Music at the Library, now in its third year, enhanced weekday evenings with performances by small ensembles and individual musicians.

The library is also headquarters for community cultural groups including Friends of the Arts and the Crestview Sister City Program.
