West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture & History
It’s November and we are all preparing for the upcoming holiday season! What better way to celebrate the season than to focus on the arts and artists of all ages from across the Mountain State. The Governor’s Annual Almost Heaven Art Exhibition is in full swing and will be accepting submissions from students in k-12 until Dec. 2. This year’s theme calls for a one-of-a-kind postcard depicting your favorite West Virginia park. https://bit.ly/3zv3Ett The First Lady’s Office is also requesting submissions from artists for the First Lady Student Ornament Competition and the 2022 Best Bow Christmas Contest. Deadline for both competitions is November 18. For more information about these, you can visit https://bit.ly/3fmtglo and https://bit.ly/3DJUL1B. As always, you can keep warm and visit any of our museums across West Virginia free of charge – the WV State Museum in Charleston, Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex in Moundsville, and WV Independence Hall in Wheeling. Stay warm and see you soon!Learn More
