MC music project earns recognition

The Marietta College Department of Music has been awarded the Leader in Residence project for the 2016-2017 school year. The project now branded, BRICK STREET BASH: Arts and Creativity Begin on Putnam Street, will culminate with an all day free public event in downtown Marietta on Saturday, April 22. The Leader in Residence is Donna Collins, executive director of the Ohio Arts Council. The purpose of the project is an Arts Advocacy project with the side benefit of bringing all elements of the community together to develop something greater than any one organization. The benefits of this project are far reaching for both the present and the future in Marietta and surrounding areas.

Two open public meetings will be held to inform the general public, the Marietta and surround areas business community, the arts community of Marietta and surround areas of the total scope of this project. Both meetings will be held on Monday, Jan. 23, at the Peoples Bank Theatre at the corner of Third and Putnam streets in Marietta. A breakfast meeting (donuts and coffee will be served) will be held at 7:30 a.m. at the Peoples Bank Theatre. The second meeting will be held at 7 p.m. the same day (Jan. 23). Both meetings will be held at the Peoples Bank Theatre at the corner of Third and Putnam streets in Marietta

Both meetings are open to all interested parties. Individuals and organizations are encouraged to be represented at one or both of these meetings.
