Citizens’ Day at the Legislature
Once again, MCA’s signature annual event, Citizens’ for the Arts Day at the Legislature, was a success. Thanks to arts advocates who traveled from all over the state to Jefferson City on February 6, 2019, Missouri legislators know that the arts matter in our state. We delivered informational packets, held meetings, and shared testimony about how Missouri’s arts industry is improving the lives of residents and providing interest to visitors. We’ll meet again in Jefferson City on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Calendar it! Learn more!
