The First Annual Artists Under the Dome Event
November 8th, 2007 from 10am to 3pm
Massachusetts State House's Great Hall
A Free Event for Massachusetts Artists Working in all Disciplines—Be there!
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts would like to invite Massachusetts artists working in all disciplines (visual arts, literary, performing, crafts, new media, etc.) to the State House on Thursday, November 8th to thank them for all they contribute to our state's economy and quality of life.
Our individual artists are corner stones of the foundation of our culture and our creative economy. This all day event, Artists Under the Dome, will become an annual event for our state to honor our individual artists and for artists to become more engaged with state policy makers.
The day will include remarks from legislators and other state officials who want your participation in the legislative process! There will also be a networking brown bag lunch, time to visit your legislators' offices and State House tours.
This event is brought to you by the Joint Committee on Tourism, Arts and Cultural Development, the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, Treasurer Tim Cahill, the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, and the Artists Foundation.
