Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) will unveil Rebel Rebel this Friday, March 3. The Artist Collective, Retrotique and Alien Gold are returning to MAC this March with additional sponsorship courtesy of Arts Monongahela. Rebel Rebel not only showcases ambiguity, fluctuation and non-conformity; it attempts to decimate socially-constructed gender norms altogether.
Morgantown’s home for the arts and culture, Monongalia Arts Center, is once again using art to champion justice. This exhibition recreates the views outside of Betsy Jaeger's 12 windows, past and present, using mixed-media elements such as sculpture, photographs and paintings to highlight the drastic changes caused by strip mining and fracking. MAC invites all to attend the opening reception with no admission on March 3, starting at 6 pm.
Monongalia Arts Center has recently added MACLiterary Night to its monthly programming, consolidating elements of the Morgantown Poets and MACscriptwriters. This monthly gathering of novelists, poets, scriptwriters and more is intended to create an open mic platform for writers across genres to share and refine their work.
