Maryland Arts Day – the only state-wide annual meeting for the Maryland arts community and its supporters – will be Feb. 8 at the Miller Senate Office Building in Annapolis. Registration is available online. Maryland Citizens for the Arts (MCA) arranges this yearly event as a way for the arts community to demonstrate its support of state funding for the arts and the Maryland State Arts Council. Participants network with each other and meet with state legislators during the day.

MCA also announces the winner of the Sue Hess Maryland Arts Advocate of the Year Award atArts Day. Last year, E. Scott Johnson, former chair of the Arts Council, received the award.
