Arundel Lodge was honored to receive Maryland’s First Lady, Yumi Hogan, on November 2nd. Mrs. Hogan, who is herself an artist as well as an art teacher at Maryland Institute College of Art, visited with persons served in the Art Program and listened as they recounted the role creative expression plays in their recovery journey. Arundel Lodge artist, Colin Lacey, proudly presented Mrs. Hogan with one of his paintings as a thank you gift.
Mrs. Hogan later toured the facility and learned about the many programs and services we provide. “First Lady was very impressed by the work, personal stories from both staff and clients, and the accessible and growing arts program,” commented Jinny Kong, Special Assistant to the First Lady of Maryland, after the visit.
