Join CAC on Saturday, January 20th at 10:30 am for the "Family ARTSventures!" program "The Highest Office” at the Dog River Library. This free performance by Barry Stewart Mann will enthrall all ages. "The Highest Office” performance will be based on Jimmy Carter's rise from the farmhouse to the White House, through multiple voices including Carter, Lester Maddox and George Wallace, and artifacts and projected images from the period. Mann will also be performing two shows for different grade levels at Chestnut Log Middle School in January.

Family ARTSventures! is a program designed to introduce performing artists into the schools with curricula-based programs, followed by an appearance at a public event for children and adults alike to enjoy.
