Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences
Upon moving to the United States, Maria quickly became involved with the community through her participation in the Rocky Mount Garden Club, the Rocky Mount Arts Center, the Elks Lodge Auxiliary, the Junior Guild, and other civic projects. As a charter member of the Arts Center, she helped the facility become part of the City of Rocky Mount Parks and Recreation Department. She also aided in the renovation of the Imperial Centre, turning it into the magnificent public facility it is today.
The Arts Center hosts a number of traveling exhibits, as
well as an extensive permanent collection. Works from the permanent collection
include Diana Broomfield’s Annalee I,
Cynthia Bringle’s Carved Vessel, and
Debra Fritts’ Gatherer4. The center
also annually hosts a sculpture exhibit called “Sculpture Salamagundi”.
Salamagundi means an eclectic mixture.
