October is National Arts & Humanities Month

No matter who you are or where you live, there are MANY ways you can celebrate the arts this October!

The arts are a part of our lives each and every day, but we take the whole month of October to commemorate the arts in a big way. It is National Arts & Humanities Month - the largest annual celebration for the arts and humanities in the nation.



United States of Art

Since the beginning of 2015, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has been gathering stories from the general public and grantees, elected officials and agency directors, artists and art lovers across the country about the importance of art in their lives and their communities. This project entitled "United States of Art" is part of the NEA's 50th anniversary celebration -- and you're invited to join! Share your arts story here.
