September 1, 2010

The board of directors of the Marshall Cultural Council announced the recent formation of the arts organization.

MCC’s goal is to promote local artists, arts education and the city of Marshall.

The organization has two fundraisers planned in coming months. The first will be an Italian Dinner and Show from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 29 at Marshall High School.

The show will include visual arts presented by local artists, including a silent auction of artwork to benefit the organization. Music by local jazz and soft acoustic rock musicians will entertain diners throughout the evening.

The next fundraiser will be the MCC Craft and Arts Festival March 26 at Marshall High School. The craft fair will include music and art in addition to handmade craft items and retail vendor booths.
