— a new series of “on the ground” experiences designed to highlight and promote the arts in cities and towns from across the state of Maryland.
Each Curate Maryland event will spotlight a selection of one town’s local arts organizations while also fostering dialogue about issues that concern arts advocates at all levels of governance. In essence, Curate Maryland is a site specific celebration, one city or town at a time, by arts lovers from around the state (think pub crawl for arts advocacy).
On May 18th, come spend some time in Hagerstown and connect to the town’s rich cultural offerings and people. Click here for more information.
