The event is free and open to the public. Rep. Debra Heffernan, D-Belle- fonte, is sponsoring Delaware Arts Advocacy Day. The 2017 program will consider the connection between arts and education, and will inform leg- islators how the arts play a vital role in shaping Delaware's future workforce. "I believe wholeheart- edly in the power of the arts, and I am honored to sponsor the second Delaware Arts Advocacy Day. The emphasis this year is on arts education since the inclusion of the arts in education helps Delaware kids gain a competitive edge. The event is open to the public and the activities designed for the day are fun, interesting and rewarding," said Heffernan. Delaware Arts Advocacy Day's program agenda will include performances and artwork from Delaware elementary school students along with local artists. There will be a panel discussion on Art Education: The Key to Delaware's Workforce of the Fu- ture. The day will conclude with readings from Poetry Out Loud state champion Cecilia Ergueta of Wilmington Friends School and first runner-up Shalyn Little- john of Hodgson Vo-Tech. "The second annual Delaware Arts Advocacy Day brings a unique opportunity to show leg- islators the importance of arts education in Delaware's cur- riculum and how it positively impacts our future workforce. We hope this program will make evident how an education in the arts shapes our students' cre- ativity and has a lasting impact," said Dr. Guillermina Gonzalez, executive director, Delaware Arts Alliance. Delaware Arts Advocacy Day comes at a time of uncertainty for the arts nationally, with the possible elimination of the Na- tional Endowment for the Arts in President Trump's draft budget. As a state, Delaware has been ranked third in the nation in state arts funding by the National As- sembly of State Arts Agencies State Arts Agency FY 2016 Leg- islative Appropriations, due to a supportive administration, the work of the Delaware Division of the Arts and the alliance's consis- tent advocacy efforts. For more information, go to Delaware Arts Advocacy Day to be held May 4 in Dover Chase Bryant, a Red Bow re- cording artist and a young rising star on the country music land- scape, will play a free concert on the AAA Stage at Victory Plaza prior to the AAA 400 Drive for Autism Monster Energy NAS- CAR Cup Series race at 1 p.m., Sunday, June 4, at Dover Interna- tional Speedway. The stage will also host an ap- pearance by Austin Dillon, driver of the Richard Childress-owned No. 3 AAA Chevrolet in the Mon- ster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and other entertainment before the Sunday race. Bryant, 24, has found early success on the country charts following the release of three popular singles, including "Take It On Back," "Little Bit of You," and "Room To Breathe." A native of Orange Grove, Texas, Bryant grew up in a musi- cal family. His grandfather, Jimmy Bry- ant, played piano in bands led by Roy Orbison and Waylon Jen- nings, while two of his uncles, Jeff Bryant and Junior Bryant, co-founded the country group Ricochet. "From the time I was a kid, the only thing I wanted to do was play music," Chase Bry- ant says. "I'm just the guy with the gui- tar. If I wasn't, I'd be the guy on the front row with his arm around his girl raising a glass to the guy onstage. No question. It's just who I am. Music is ev- erything." Between dates performing with Brad Paisley's Life Ampli- fied World Tour in 2017, Bryant's free concert will be held at the AAA Stage at Victory Plaza locat- ed near the Monster Monument presented by Smithfield behind the frontstretch grandstands at the Monster Mile.
