Upcoming Events

2017 offers a challenging and exciting year for the Culture Coalition. Imagination, vision, creativity are in the mix to bring more art/drama/cultural youth outreach projects to our community. It's an exciting time for new and innovative programming in Campbell County. Please check back frequently for updates.

Meanwhile - mark these upcoming events to celebrate arts in action in Campbell County:

Youth Art: Quilts, Justice Building Lobby, Jacksboro.

 Unveiing. Mon Nov 21, 2016 6 P.M.
You are now able to view the incredible quilts created by middle school age children from Wynn School and Jacksboro Middle School. The students learned under tutelage of local quilters, Sally Newhall and Terri Chaniott, how to design, sew and assemble the blocks to create two great quilts that will last a lifetime. These 5 ft x 5 ft quilts are hung and displayed on the wall in the lobby of the Campbell County Justice Center in Jacksboro. This project is part of a series of the youth art programs sponsored by the Culture Coalition using grant monies, local business and individual contributions to cover costs so that no parent had to pay for supplies or instruction. Our youth art programs continue touching lives.
