A statewide arts education group has named Anne Arundel Schools Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell as its arts advocate for 2010, citing his creation of an arts magnet program at an Annapolis middle school and other arts-related initiatives.

The Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance plans to honor Maxwell at a conference at Towson University on June 3.

"Dr. Kevin Maxwell's commitment to arts education has resulted in vibrant learning [and] teaching environments that prepare Maryland's school children to think creatively, innovate, problem solve, collaborate, communicate and compete successfully in the 21st century global economy," the alliance said in a statement.

In addition to bringing an arts magnet program to Wiley H. Bates Middle School, Maxwell collaborated with the alliance and Collegio San Carlo in Milan, Italy, to link students and teachers from Anne Arundel with their Italian counterparts.

Maxwell also serves as the co-chair of the Maryland Fine Arts Education Advisory Panel.
