Arts and the Historic USO

By Marina Giovannelli

Wilmington, NC – The Thalian Association says it's putting together an advisory committee to make sure Wilmington's Community Arts Center is widely accessible to the arts groups.

The Thalian association,which runs the center, says an eclectic crowd including theatre people, potters and teachers showed up to a recent meeting in the Hanna Block Historic building to discuss how The Arts Center can best serve the arts community.

Tom Briggs, Executive Director, says he and the City will choose members of the advisory board very carefully, and he understands many people want to be at that table.

"So we really want objective people who don't have an agenda or an ax to grind and that can look at everything with a fresh pint of view and who don't have baggage and all that stuff."

The advisory committee selection will take place behind closed-doors. Briggs says he hopes to have the committee up and running before September, when the Theatre season and community arts classes are in full swing.
