Nancy Marie Haragan, founding executive director of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, died Nov. 27 of metastatic melanoma. The Canton resident was 60. "Reflecting on all she's done for the arts community made me realize how transformative Nancy was. She was able to bring the arts community together in a collaborative effort and get them to sit around the same table," said Doreen Bolger, director of the Baltimore Museum of Art and a longtime friend. "She brought in new technology and helped find a voice for the arts in the city. Nancy really is irreplaceable."
