Happenings at the Hall:
The Old Labor Hall has been chosen as one of the "stops" on the Granite From the He(ART) of Vermont online tour of granite art and cultural features. The tour which was created by Barre’s Rock of Ages Visitors Center is a celebrated collection of Vermont trails and itineraries, a virtual arts trail that maps the stories of some of the most magnificent, curious, and unusual examples of stone art in Central Vermont. Rock of Ages developed the art-focused tour as part of the 2015 celebration of the "Year of the Arts" as part of the 50th anniversary of the Vermont Arts Council, to demonstrate why Barre and surrounding areas were ranked by the National Center for Arts Research as number ten among medium and small metropolitan statistical areas as a “Hotbed of America’s Arts and Culture” in its NCAR Arts Vibrancy Index.
