We are flying toward the first-ever Maryland Arts Summit! The staff members of the Maryland State Arts Council, Maryland Citizens for the Arts, Maryland State Department of Education's Fine Arts Office, and Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance have been hard at work curating the first conference of its kind for the entirety of Maryland’s arts sector. More than 70 professional development sessions, presented by 150 arts leaders, will be offered along with the opportunity to celebrate leading artists during the Maryland Heritage Awards and the Individual Artist Award ceremonies. Any person, with any level of arts interest, will find the summit engaging and inspiring. I hope to see you at UMBC in June!
