The Art Itself, First Place Winner Richard Beaubien

Art in the Park, an exhibition of sculptures by New England artists in Worcester’s historic Elm Park, learned this week that it has been selected to receive a prestigious Gold Star Award from the Mass Cultural Council for its successful 2009 event.

The MCC’s Gold Star Awards, established in 2001, recognize exemplary cultural programs funded by local cultural councils (LCCs) throughout the state. These projects celebrate diversity, foster collaboration, showcase artistic excellence, and provide learning experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Members of the Art in the Park staff will be at the State House on February 10th to receive this honor.
