On October 3, President Barack Obama released a proclamation declaring October 2011 National Arts & Humanities Month.  National Arts & Humanities Month was established in 1993 and is celebrated every October in the United States. It was initiated to encourage Americans to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives, and to begin a lifelong habit of active participation in the arts and humanities. As the nation’s largest collective annual celebration of the arts, we want you to be a part of the festivities.  Find out how you can get involved by hosting or attending an event in your community.  Share your stories and images of how you’re celebrating this October.
