To register:

For the seventh time, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts invited Massachusetts artists working in all disciplines (visual arts, literary, performing, crafts, new media, etc.) to the State House on Wednesday, November 13th to thank them for all 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 2013 event was brought to you by the Joint Committee on Tourism, Arts and Cultural Development, The Massachusetts State Treasury, the Massachusetts Artists Leaders Coalition, the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Businesses, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the State House's Cultural Caucus. The event was from 10am to 2pm. It was free and open to the public. Thank you to everyone who came, spoke and helped with this event!
