Alabama has several official “cultural symbols,” including at least four that can be classified as symbols of the arts.
|Alabama Theatre for the Performing Arts
|The Miracle Worker
|Outdoor Musical Drama
|The Incident at Looney’s Tavern
|Pine Burr Quilt
The official outdoor drama honors, rather than Anne Sullivan and her famous student, Helen Keller. An outspoken political activist and socialist, Keller is one of my personal heroes.
