Upshur County arts organization donates to theater renovation

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. - A group supporting the arts in Upshur County has made a donation to the renovations of the Colonial Theater in Buckhannon.

Art 26201 presented a five-thousand dollar check to Mayor David McCauley in a ceremony Thursday.

The donated money came from fundraisers held earlier in the year by the organization.

President Bryson VanNostrand said he hopes to see the completed building foster a new appreciation of the arts in the area.

"This project, which is the renovation of an old historic theater into a community arts center, is going to be really the premier arts location in the whole downtown," said VanNostrand.

The renovations have been supported by grants from the state and other donations from the community.
