Thank you to MRAC Board Members, panelists, program partners, artists and culture makers, and arts and culture groups for working under incredibly challenging circumstances to ensure the arts were accessible to Twin Cities metropolitan communities over the last year.
As we look to 2022, we want to continue to adapt and evolve, so we can do our best work of supporting arts access.
We are optimistic and hopeful for the new year!
