The Andover Cultural Council and the Addison Gallery are hosting a celebration entitled Andover MASSterpieces: Celebrating Local Cultural Excellence. The 2007 grant recipients, twenty-five organizations, and individuals from Andover and neighboring communities will be honored on May 3, 2007, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Addison. The evening will include a performance by the North Shore Youth Symphony ensemble, a welcome by the Addison’s Mary Stripp and R. Crosby Kemper Director Brian Allen, and remarks from grant recipients. Refreshments will be provided complements of Andover Cakes, Andover Liquors, The Cupcake Boutique, Dish, I Dream of Jeannie Cakes, and Wild Oats. The event is sponsored by Butler Bank.

The Andover Cultural Council is part of the Local Cultural Council Program (LCC), the second largest grant program of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The LCC Program is the most extensive system of its kind in the nation to support arts, sciences and humanities in local communities.

Andover Cultural Council grants benefit public school arts and sciences programs, help to support public art projects, provide a showcase for local artists at town events such as Andover Days, and help to nurture new arts and established arts programs in the community including such well known programs as the Andover Chamber Music Series, the Andover Choral Society and many others.
