The 2018 Mid Mon Valley Cultural Trust's, (MMVCT) Art Competition theme was inspired by the musical "The Sound of Music" and the signature song "My Favorite Thing". The lyrics to the song are a reference to things Maria loves, such as "whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens". These are the things she selects to fill her mind with when times are bad. Local Artists and Photographers were asked to share one of their favorite things through their art or photograph along with a paragraph to convey their vision and how it reflected a sense of your favorite thing. This year's competition included a Photography Category as well as Original Art.
