“We are so excited to recognize this year’s honorees,” said Ken Butler, Executive Director. “The group represents a wonderful mix of talented artists who help create our productions and volunteer leadership who are essential to helping the Center run its programs.”
“Each year we seek to identify those individuals and organizations who truly make a difference in both the work we do at Mass Arts Center from a performance or artist’s lens, but also those who lend their time and talents to fortifying our operations,” said Board President Brian Johnson of Mansfield. “Our Gala Committee is busy preparing a fabulous evening to recognize our honorees for their dedication and contributions.”
