Counting Down to 
Arts Month 2017
A Bold New Campaign

Through our partnership with the American Advertising Federation chapter in Colorado Springs (AAF-COS), Arts Month received a design makeover this year. We are thrilled to feature images of local art and artists in a style that reflects the energy and diversity of our creative community. Thank you, AAF-COS!

The campaign launches September 1 and continues across the region through the end of October. Look for billboards, bus shelters, print ads, radio spots and even a TV commercial promoting that October is Arts Month in the Pikes Peak region.

One Landing Page + One Hashtag

Spread the word that the official landing page of Arts Month, featuring the events calendar, a toolkit for community involvement, proclamations, media, and more is:

The official hashtag for social sharing is:  #ArtsOctober
