Experience the Arts
Attendees at National Assembly of State Arts Agencies conference in Baltimore experience the arts with artist Denise Tassin, far right.
Maryland’s diverse artistic culture has something to offer everyone interested in experiencing the arts, as an audience member, artist, student, volunteer or patron. A recent state-wide survey of the arts shows nearly 90% of Maryland residents are engaged observers of art, having attended live musical performances, live theater or dance, art festivals or events, and museums or galleries over the past year, and 84% create art either professionally or in their spare time. These astounding statistics demonstrate that Maryland supports a thriving artistic community and is dedicated to the arts.
