Executive Director Joann Vaughan will receive the first Arts Excellence in Leadership Award Wednesday night from the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County.
Joann is finishing 10 years as head of MFA and has grown the organization into a nationally known visual arts nonprofit. MFA now boasts 700 members, hosts 32 exhibitions per year, including Paint Annapolis, and attracts artists for exhibition from across the US and Canada.
Read more about Joann’s inspiration and accomplishments in a recent blog post by Patrice Drago for Visit Annapolis. Also see the other five Annie recipients for 2018, including a well-deserved posthumous award to journalist Wendi Winters. MFA thoughts are with her family.
