Arts & Culture
When most think of beauty in the lower Appalachians, they think of stunning natural features and serene landscapes. A very different kind of visual satisfaction can be found in the many art galleries and museums throughout the area. From Huntsville to Athens, North Alabama is passionate about the arts.
The museums in the Mountain Region vary from historical institutions that help modern generations reconnect with the areas rich past to locations that help foster appreciation for the local environment and the natural resources it produces.
The northern portion of the state has maintained an enthusiasm for performing arts far larger than its population. The region maintains a nice mix of professional and community companies in theatre and dance, and the people of the area continue to show great support through generous contributions and outstanding attendance.
The professional music companies in the Mountain Region help to broaden the greater cultural experience of our residents. From summer Sousa renditions to intimate Chopin sonatas, the music lover has much to choose from in North Alabama.
