Easton Named Newest Maryland Arts & Entertainment District

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md. - The Town of Easton is one of two newly designated areas by Maryland as an Arts & Entertainment District.

Explore Easton Director Ross Benincasa says the town can now offer its artists and businesses tax-incentives, creating a lasting home for artists and for events like the Plein Air and Waterfowl Festivals each year.

"The more festivals we can bring in, the more artists we can bring in, the more musicians that come into Easton," Benincasa said. "We just see a rolling effect on the other industries in town."

It's a rolling effect that town leaders hope will draw even more artists and art-lover to town, according to Anke Van Wagenberg, a Chief Curator at the Academy Art Museum.

"It's going to be very exciting," Van Wagenberg said."Diversity is also high on the agenda and we'd like to have a mixed audience as much as possible."
