Celebrate area’s artistic history
To the editor:
The Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center once again will host the annual Robert Haworth Memorial Art Exhibition on Oct. 16 at the museum located at 3149 Main St. in downtown Weirton. The art committee of the museum invites area residents to come and enjoy the art of this year’s featured Haworth students Helen Sweeney and the late Mitchell Anthony Sagan.
In addition, the exhibit will showcase the work of Haworth, his students, as well as current local students and artists from the Tri-State Area.
The exhibit started with my father, Dr. Ray S. Greco’s, list of 17 great area artists. This list has grown to nearly 100 former Haworth students.
The exhibition begins at 11 a.m. on Oct. 16 and will run through 4 p.m. Oct. 23. It is free and open to the public. There will be a “members-only” preview reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday.
Looking forward to seeing you.

Art committee chairman
