Even after months of delays amid the Coronavirus pandemic, construction on the Holmes Center for the Arts has begun on State Route 39 in Berlin. More than $2 million dollars has been raised for the building so far, and Executive Director Holley Johnson says the facility is still seeking $500,000 dollars to reach their fundraising goal. In 2019, the Holmes Center for the Arts served over 500 students through a variety of area programs.
