Creative Life in the Gateway Arts District

Maryland Arts Day

Art Lives Here has the pleasure of attending Maryland Arts Day, hosted by Maryland Citizens for the Arts, yesterday February 20th, 2013.


It was a wonderful day of arts talk, arts action and arts advocacy. The two primary goals of the day were:

1) to maximize the number lawmakers with whom we reach

2) to empower our unified and personally unique messages about the need for public support for the arts to be heard by lawmakers


Keynote speaker Dr. Charles Limb, Associate Professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, talked about his unique study of jazz improvisation that revealed important new findings regarding patterns of brain activity that underlie spontaneous musical creativity.

Thanks to all that made this incredible day possible!
