Mountain Arts District
The Mountain Arts District (MAD) is a place, a network, a resource for artists, and online it is a directory for all people and events in our mountain counties. Its purpose is to promote the unique arts and culture of north central West Virginia, spanning the counties of Barbour, Pocahontas, Randolph, Taylor, Tucker, and Upshur. MAD was formed by a collective group of volunteers to strengthen the arts economy, establish the area as an arts destination for tourists, and increase the development of public arts.
If you are looking for a unique keepsake, home-spun performance, or just things to do in the Mountain State, then take a look at the MAD artists and venues in this directory. We give you who, what, when, and where to buy artists’ goods and services. There is also information on the variety of venues, galleries, and festivals in our counties of Barbour, Pocahontas, Randolph, Taylor, Tucker, and Upshur. Explore and enjoy the multitude of art and events available in our region.
