Edgar Allan Poe rises from the dead for this special Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) appearance just in time for Halloween! Since his death in 1849, Poe’s writings have been revered for their depiction of ghastly murders and haunting, spooky scenes. Poe, portrayed by literary historian Rob Velella, will read a combination of his well-known and lesser-known works of both poetry and prose.
Monongalia Arts Center (MAC), in collaboration with Alien Gold, Artist Collective of West Virginia, and Retrotique, will unveil Cabal of the Hidden during the Downtown Morgantown ARTS WALK. In preparation for the Halloween season, Cabal channels the occult, the mystical and the surreal. Various mediums wil be featured in the Davis Gallery this October. Let your imagination run wild from 6 – 9 upstairs at MAC during ARTS WALK.
Artist Spotlight: Jamie Lester
Sculptor, painter, musician, composer and Morgantown local, Jamie Lester is featured in MAC's monthly Artist Spotlight!
The beauty of the body has inspired artists from the dawn of history yet remains an inextricable part of the human experience. Our intimate familiarity with the human body bears the challenge to the artist, transforming that which is known into an expression of emotion. MAC intends to capture that emotion with the return of Bare Form.
