PLUS Military Arts Connection Opportunity for Artists
Still So Much to Enjoy!
There has never been a more important time for our community to focus on the power, unity, and joy of our creativity. Arts Month 2020 continues through the month of October with an array of virtual, and in-person opportunities to get you inspired and engaged!
The Cultural Office has crafted a unique approach to Arts Month this year that continues to bridge sectors, neighborhoods, and artistic disciplines. You'll find new offerings like the Artist-of-the-Day series on Peak Radar's social media, the Peak Radar Live online show every Sunday at 6 p.m., and the compelling voices of the Community Conversationsseries throughout the month. If you missed some of these so far, you'll find them all at the new online home for Arts Month, ArtsOctober.com.
The core of #ArtsOctober is the same as it has been since it began seven years ago. "Have one new arts & cultural experience with family or friends this October."
