TURNING DOLLARS INTO PRINTS, PATTERNS AND POTS

Massachusetts Cultural Council Recognizes Maud Morgan Arts as a Leader in Arts Education 

 

Terry DeLancey, the Executive Director of  the Agassiz Baldwin Community (ABC),  recently received some good news. The  Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) has  awarded DeLancey's agency $2,500 in the Peers Category of the Cultural Investment Portfolio to support the work of Maud Morgan Arts, a program of ABC.

 

Since state grants are awarded through a competitive process, this award signifies that ABC provides a high level of service to community members through its programs. According to the award letter, "MCC staff and panelists were impressed by the innovative work [ABC is] doing to increase public value for the citizens of Massachusetts." DeLancey calls this award "an honor."

 

"All the faculty at Maud Morgan Arts are artists in their own right," says DeLancey. "The students receive a first-rate arts experience with extended classes in studios that are specific for the medium. This grant gives us the opportunity to serve more students."

 

MCC Logo The MCC's mission is to promote  excellence, education, access and diversity  in the arts, humanities and sciences in  order to improve the quality of life for all  Massachusetts residents and to contribute to the economic vitality of our communities. The MCC has a budget of $11.2 million, including an appropriation of $9.5 million from the state of Massachusetts and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and other sources. Its funds reach every community in Massachusetts. The not-for-profit cultural industry has a $4.2 billion economic impact in the state.
