Susie Farr Named Sue Hess Arts Advocate of the Year by Maryland Citizens for the Arts
Susie Farr, our Executive Director, has been awarded the Sue Hess Arts Advocate of the Year Award by Maryland Citizens for the Arts (MCA). The award was presented in person by its namesake, Sue Hess, at Maryland Arts Day in Annapolis on Wednesday, February 20.
Named for the longest serving member on MCA's Board of Trustees, the Sue Hess Award is given to individuals whose advocacy efforts have significantly benefitted the entire Maryland arts community.
"The impact that Susie's work has had on the communities surrounding the Clarice Smith Center is vast. In an area of the state that was traditionally under-served she created a source of cultural enrichment which reaches far beyond the University's borders," said John Schratwieser, Executive Director of Maryland Citizens for the Arts. "Her work is exactly the kind of advocacy we seek to encourage with the Sue Hess Award."
