Recruiting artists

Where is Kathy Skerritt moving? I am here in beautiful Frostburg, MD, this morning for my mother's retirement.  These sleepy, mountain towns--Frostburg, Cumberland--are coming alive again with cyclists, train aficionados, hikers, families and the arts. 


Kudos to the Alleghany Arts Council and the Allegheny Trails Alliance for breathing life into the history and majesty of these mountains.

 It's not an over analyzed, committee process--just restoration and renewal brought to you by real artists (not con artists and bullshit artists) allowed to do their thing--OH, and, by the way, saving some historic buildings.
