Celebrate National Arts and Humanities Month!
||The Devil in the Valley by Vermont author Castle Freeman, shared on Instagram for "On my Bookshelf" day.
Last week, Governor Phil Scott proclaimed October as Vermont Arts and Humanities Month, joining the coast-to-coast recognition of the importance of arts and culture in the U.S. In partnership with the Governor's office, the Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Humanities Council are shining a spotlight on the many cultural activities that take place every day in the Green Mountain State.
The mission of National Arts and Humanities Month is to:
- focus on the arts at local, state, and national levels
- encourage individuals and organizations to participate in the arts
- allow governments and businesses to show their support of the arts
- raise public awareness about the role the arts and humanities play in our communities and lives
Get involved! Vermont's Arts and Humanities Councils are participating in a nationwide Instagram campaign with the hashtag #ShowYourArt2019. There is a new theme each day. Friday, October 11 is "Inspired by . . .," Saturday is "Poetry," and Sunday is "Museums and Galleries." See all of the
upcoming themes here
