Creative Cauldron Receives Grant from Fairfax Co. Arts Council

The Falls Church arts organization Creative Cauldron has received a project grant from the Arts Council of Fairfax County. The $4,149 grant will support the organization’s “Bold New Work for Intimate Stages” project “Monsters of Villa Diodati.”

This original work will investigate the artistic minds behind works such as Frankenstein and The Vampyre. The “monsters” inside of each literary genius will be released in the work, exploring the gothic creativity of all of these artists.

“Monsters of the Villa Diodati” will have its first workshop reading on Monday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. before donors and supporters. The piece will run from Jan. 29 – Feb. 28, 2016, at ArtSpace Falls Church at 410 S. Maple Avenue. Fore more information, visit
