Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen (R-Alexandria) received an Arts All Star Award from Minnesota Citizens for the Arts (MCA) on August 2 at the Alexandria Area Arts Association (AAAA) Theatre. The award was in recognition of Ingebrigtsen's support of the arts in the 2012 legislative session and represents one of only a few Arts All Star Awards being presented this year.

The award is designed to show the arts community's appreciation to legislators who display a significant understanding, interest and support for arts.
