The 5th Annual Artists Under the Dome Event at the Massachusetts State House, Nurses Hall, Thursday, November 17, 2011 (10 AM-3 PM) is an opportunity for Massachusetts artists working in all disciplines (visual arts, literary, performing, crafts, new media, etc.) to meet with their elected officials and to hear legislators discuss issues around the arts in Massachusetts. It’s also an opportunity for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to thank artists for all for they contribute to our state’s economy and quality of life. Massachusetts is the only state in the country to have such an event.
The event is organized by the Massachusetts Artists Leaders Coalition. There will also be networking opportunities, information sharing for artists in communities and for teaching artists. Find more information and RSVP for this event.
Even if you can’t come on the 17th, you can still participate.
