The mission of the West Virginia Department of Arts, 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.
Ho! Ho! Ho! It's December, which means Ol' Saint Nick will soon be dashing across the Night sky to bring holiday cheer to young boys and girls across West Virginia.
This month, The First Lady's Festival of Songs and Joyful Night provide us an opportunity to celebrate and spread joy during this wonderful time of the year with the most important people to us... you.
We invite you to join us on December 1st for the First Lady's Festival of Songs and December 4th for Joyful Night, as we celebrate this magical time of the year accompanied by talented, melodic, young choral groups from around the state.
As always, we encourage you to visit the West Virginia State Museum as well. The museum follows a chronological exhibit path beginning with prehistoric times through early settlement and into the present, making the State Museum a wonderful place to bring the family for a fun-filled, educational experience!
We hope that you have a blessed holiday season and a wonderful ending to 2018!
