We spent a lovely evening with our Tourism Commission and other concerned citizens. The discussion about Tourism, Murals, and Outdoor Concerts was so engaging that we thought we would share it with you!
While it is a long episode, every second is worth it.
Here are some links that go along with what was discussed during the meeting:
Musician Jeff Parker shares stories on this week’s Berea Podcast. From playing guitar when he was six to playing Carnegie Hall, Jeff talks about the impact that music has had on his life. To hear more stories and hear him play, come to a benefit concert for the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen on July 14th, 2018 at Brock Auditorium in the Coates Building at EKU in Richmond, Kentucky.
Berea’s Gallery 123 Arts Accelerator Program suffered a fire on April 30, 2018, but first responders, friends, and the community-at-large have offered support in traditional and unexpected ways!
