The Museum of Appalachia was the perfect backdrop for the Appalachian Arts Craft Center’s 50th anniversary celebration. Guests gathered to listen to musicians perform Americana, folk and traditional Appalachian music while perusing a silent auction of locally handmade items. All attendees enjoyed a catered dinner and learned more about the Appalachian Arts Craft Center. All funds will go toward the organization’s efforts to support arts and crafts in Appalachia through education, sales and community involvement.
