At its 16th annual Maryland Arts Day, Maryland Citizens for the Arts (MCA) presented Gov. O’Malley with its Outstanding Leadership in the Arts Award.  The award was given to O’Malley for his unwavering support of the Maryland State Arts Council throughout his term, signing the Maryland Public Art Initiative into law, and the recent 15% increase in the General Fund appropriation in fiscal year 2014.
