SAVE THE DATE!

On April 3, 2020, we will gather at The Westin Annapolis to celebrate the Passion for the Arts.

UPDATE (May 15, 2020): PASSION FOR THE ARTS GALA 2020 CANCELLED 

The Arts Council of Anne Arundel County have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and were hopeful that we would be able to celebrate with you later this year. Unfortunately, the Arts Council has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Passion for the Arts Gala this year. However, we are looking forward to being able to celebrate with you at our Gala next year scheduled for April 10, 2021.

We greatly appreciate your support and understanding. Check back on this page later for more information!

 

PASSION FOR THE ARTS GALA POSTPONED
The health and safety of our guests, staff and community is the top priority for the Arts Council. Due to the current state of emergency regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and guidance provided by Governor Hogan and County Executive Pittman, the Arts Council Board of Directors has elected to postpone the Passion for the Arts Gala that was scheduled for April 3, 2020. Ticket holders will be contacted directly. We will continue to provide updates as we receive additional information.
