Description

Please Join the Maryland State Arts Council

for a Celebration of the Arts

Friday, April 20, 2018 6:00-9:30pm at The Walters Art Gallery

Heart pounding music, foot stomping dance, soulful poetry and electrifying digital and visual art – the Maryland State Arts Council supports it all.

We regret to inform you that we are sold out, but please register for the waitlist and we will release any tickets that become available.

Come celebrate MSAC’s 50th Anniversary with a reception featuring traditional hands-on artist demonstrations and gorgeous artworks by past individual artist award winners. During the program, you will enjoy the thunderous dancing of the Barnstormers and RockCandy Cloggers accompanied by the music of legendary Slim Harrison, visually stunning performances by the Peace Mission Dance Company, Sankofa Dance Theatre, and Flamenco Aparicio with Ricardo Marlow, guitarist.

During this celebration of Maryland’s past and future, the creativity of Marylanders will shine through the amazing talent of young Poetry Out Loud winners, the theatrical abilities of Imagination Stage and Maryland playwrights, the music of Sombarkin’ and the World Music of Jonathan Stone.
