Back to the Creek Week 2014
The Back to the Creek Week 2014 project was the Appalachian Cultural Center. The Center, located at the intersection of King and George Street when you visit campus through the main entrance, opened in 1988 and serves as an educational hub for Appalachian culture, history, and exhibits for Carson-Newman and the community at-large. In the past, the Center has included art and photography exhibits, folk art and craft programs, regional heritage demonstrations, book and poetry readings, as well as musical events.
The Appalachian Cultural Center, which houses a small gallery for artistic, cultural, and historical exhibits and frequently hosts readings and presentations by regional writers and artists, underwent renovation of its first floor and porch area, kitchen, bathroom and gallery.
After a long day of hard work, the Appalachian Cultural Center was restored to the look of its original build.
