The Mid-America Arts Alliance, through a partnership with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, will celebrate both visual and musical arts with a series of special performances in five Ozarks communities this summer.
In Houston, an exhibition of either “Apron Strings” or “Rodeo” will run from June 23 through July 7 in conjunction with Licking’s summer rodeo. A related performance will be announced.
The series, made possible through the CFO’s Ozark Plateau Initiative to bring visiting artists to rural communities, will also visit Shell Knob, Willard, Mountain Grove and Eldon.
The Ozark Plateau Initiative undertook this project with the Mid-America Arts Alliance to serve CFO’s regional affiliate communities. Since its inception, programs have taken place in Salem, Seymour, West Plains, Cuba, Stockton, Forsyth, Gainesville, Poplar Bluff, Carthage, Clinton, Hermitage, Mt. Vernon, Marshfield and Ozark. The Missouri Arts Council has joined the partnership by providing resources to continue the program for more communities in the future.
