Professor Daniel Ranalli, director of the graduate program in arts administration and Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist fellow, curated the Fine Arts Work Center’s 4th Annual Summer Celebration in Provincetown, MA. The awards gala and fundraiser was attended by honoree Governor Deval Patrick on July 13, 2013. Patrick was chosen because of his efforts to keep the arts afloat. He explains, “Massachusetts leads the way in innovation and commitment to the creative community. Even through difficult economic times, there is a steadfast effort to keep the arts alive and thriving. Under Gov. Patrick’s leadership, the concerted dedication to the creative economy and to continued support for the arts is both meaningful and vital.”
