The Roanoke Valley in Virginia's Blue Ridge is highlighted in a new feature by Zenda Douglas for the Greensboro News & Record. The article gives a closer look at many of the unique arts & cultural experiences visitors can expect to find in the region, including the Taubman Museum of Art, the locally-designed LOVEwork sculpture, and the railroad history on display at the O. Winston Link Museum.
Douglas has high praise for the arts scene in Downtown Roanoke, saying:
"Roanoke's vibrant arts community converges in the heart of downtown, offering diverse galleries, studios, and theaters."
It also features some of the great shopping spots in Virginia's Blue Ridge, such as Black Dog Salvage and Appalachia Press, which offer extensive collections of one-of-a-kind treasures and handmade products.
Douglas visited the region in Spring 2016, when she participated in a media tour that was hosted by Visit Virginia's Blue Ridge.
