The mission of the West Virginia Division of Culture and History is to identify, preserve, protect, promote and present the ideas, arts and artifacts of West Virginia’s heritage, building pride in our past accomplishments and confidence in our future.
Welcome from Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith.
March Madness at the West Virginia Division of Culture and History is all about arts, history and poetry.
At the Culture Center, we celebrate youth art with the annual Congressional Youth Art exhibit. High school students from around the state will gather on March 2 for an arts workshop and awards program. The exhibit will be featured in the Balcony Gallery through the month.
At Grave Creek Mound, visitor can see the watercolor works of Donna Hall of Wheeling who is the featured artist of the month. There are plenty of family friendly activities there as well.
Poetry takes center stage at the Culture Center March 9 and 10 when high school students compete in the annual Poetry Out Loud competition.
Statewide, the annual regional West Virginia State History Bowl competitions continue. A play-in tournament in Buckhannon on March 17 gives teams an extra chance to compete in the state tournament in April.
We hope you have an opportunity to enjoy our special type of March Madness and see some of what’s great about West Virginia!
