ArtsErie honors Mercyhurst

Mercyhurst College and Michael Fuhrman, director of the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center, have been chosen by ArtsErie as recipients of this year’s Applause Award for their contribution to creating a diverse and vibrant arts culture in Erie County.

The award will be presented on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel during ArtsErie’s annual “Fall for the Arts,” which begins at 5:30 p.m.

Mercyhurst and Fuhrman are being recognized for their positive impact on the arts in Erie, particularly “the 15 wonderful years of programming … by the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center,” according to ArtsErie.

The Erie Art Museum will be honored with the organization’s Leadership in Arts Award, while Madelyn Simmons, a special education teacher at the Wattsburg Area Elementary Center, will be honored for her contributions toward the enhancement of arts education.
