Scotch-Irish exhibit seeks donations

North Carolina Arts Council has provided initial funding for the research and development of the Scotch-Irish exhibit at the Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center outside Robbinsville.

The Arts Council is now matching funds for the printing, mounting and placement of the exhibit. This exhibit will be a companion piece to the Cherokee exhibit at Stecoah and will feature the history of the Stecoah Valley after the removal of the Cherokee Indians in 1838. Most of the photographs for the Scotch-Irish Exhibit have never been seen outside of the families that have granted the exhibit the permission to publish them. Funding for this exhibit is being generated by power2give. The Arts Council will match contributions dollar for dollar.
