The Maryland State Arts Council was established in 1967 as an agency of the State of Maryland, under the authority of the Department of Business & Economic Development, Division of Tourism, Film and the Arts. MSAC awards grants to organizations and individual artists for arts programming and projects, provides technical and advisory assistance to individuals and groups, and carries out cultural programs of its own. The Council’s Maryland Folklife program co-founded Maryland Traditions with the Maryland Historical Trust in 2000 to preserve and promote authentic cultural traditions and folk arts.
