Congratulations to the 2020 MAEA Art Educators of the Year! The MAEA Board of Directors are looking forward to honoring and celebrating the 2020 MAEA Art Educators of the Year at the 2019 MAEA conference at Montserrat College of Art. The awards ceremony has been scheduled for November 9, 2019 at 5:00 pm in the Underground 248 Cabot St, Beverly, MA. Please join us for the awards ceremony at 5:00 pm. The MAEA Awards Ceremony is open to the public. Nominations for the 2021 awards will open the weekend of the 2019 conference at Montserrat College of Art.

Thank you to all the artists who submitted work for the Call for Art for the award plaques.
