2017 Legislative Luncheon – November 9, 2017, 11:30-1pm
Each November, the Greater Augusta Arts Council hosts a Legislative Luncheon. Attended by local and state legislators and leaders of Augusta’s vibrant arts community, discussions are held on economic development, upcoming plans for the future and public art.
2017 special guest Randy Cohen, Vice President of Research and Policy at Americans for the Arts, will present the results of the Augusta participation in the Arts and Economic Prosperity 5, an arts survey project that shows the economic impact of the arts nationwide.
This event provides a great opportunity to gain understanding of the importance of arts in Augusta, as well as a chance for attendees to acknowledge Augusta’s local legislators. Tickets for the luncheon will be available online starting in October.
