October – Art from Other Cultures or “Not From Around Here” exhibit
This exhibit will focus on the various cultures that make up Marshall County communities – Asian, Hispanic, Native American, and more. In the South, a common introductory question is “Where are your people from?” Excuse the incorrect grammar! Or upon hearing a unique accent, “You’re not from around here, are you?” Whether you came to the US last week or on the Mayflower, we welcome you to Marshall County Alabama!
Almost all of MVAC’s exhibits focus on local artists of all ages, but this exhibit focuses on art from other cultures whether they are family heirlooms from “the ole country”, artistic mementos bought on travels around the world, or art created following Native American techniques are included.
