Market St., in historic Downtown Staunton.

Questions for the candidates will be prepared from submissions by members of the Staunton Art and Culture Council, an informal, grassroots coalition of Staunton organizations involved in the arts and history.  The Art and Culture Council currently includes six performing theater groups, five visual arts organizations, five performing music organizations, four history/preservation groups, and one literary group.
