As interim director of MCA, it is my pleasure to work on behalf of you, our arts community, to secure funding from the 2021 Session of the Minnesota Legislature for the statewide system administered by the Minnesota State Arts Board and our 11 Regional Arts Councils.
Please join me on April 14 at 3 pm for a briefing from MCA’s lobbyist, Larry Redmond, on arts funding at the Minnesota Legislature, to learn how you can have an impact at the State Capitol on arts funding, and to receive an update on the search for MCA’s executive director.
