    Minnesota's arts community joins together during Arts Advocacy Day to educate legislators about the arts in their communities and ask them to support arts funding. This session the legislature will decide how much funding there will be for the arts for the next two years! Because of the election there are big changes at the Capitol, new Chairs of the funding committees, and lots of brand new legislators who need to be educated about the importance of the arts to Minnesota.

    This year you can also experience the beautiful and newly renovated State Capitol. Tours of the building will be available between visits with legislators so you can take time to see for yourself the art and architecture.

    The bus will pick participants up in the parking lot at the east side St Cloud Cashwise at 6:00 am, at the CMAB Office in Foley at 6:20 am, or the Monticello Cub at 7:00 am. For a suggested donation of only $10 you can leave the driving and parking fees to us and you will be safely returned to your vehicle between 3pm and 3:45pm. You are welcome to bring a lunch or purchase one from the cafeteria.

    REGISTER TO RIDE THE BUS AT Or Mail a Check to: CMAB: Advocacy Day, P.O. Box 458, Foley, MN 56329. Include your name, address, Email, phone number, and your legislator's name (if you know it).
