Cultural Arts

Named one of America’s 12 Small Town Arts Places, the Highlands Plateau nurtures a longstanding love of the creative spirit. Artists of every genre-- visual, performing, musical, literary and culinary-- have homes in the Highlands and the surrounding mountains. The result is a profusion of creativity in the lifestyle that can be found in local shops, galleries and theaters, festivals and outdoor concerts.
