Eastern West Virginia Artists Census

The Berkeley Arts Council (BAC) is conducting a census of artists in the
Eastern West Virginia Region. BAC seeks responses from artists and artisans,
who work in any discipline, in the eight eastern counties: Berkeley,
Jefferson, Morgan, Hampshire, Hardy, Grant, Mineral, and Pendleton. BAC
seeks to develop data on artists and artisans working in all disciplines
that can be compiled to support arts advocacy by BAC and other
organizations. Go to the survey.
