Morris Arts once again spearheaded a Proclamation from the Board of Chosen Freeholders on behalf of the County’s arts and cultural organizations to designate the entire month of October as Arts & Humanities Month in Morris County. The Freeholder’s Proclamation coordinates with National “Arts and Humanities Month,” a coast-to-coast collective celebration of culture in America. Organized every October by Americans for the Arts, National Arts and Humanities Month represents the largest annual celebration of the arts and humanities in the nation. Communities across the United States join together in October to recognize the importance of arts and culture in our daily lives. Given the specter of massive budget cuts to the arts and the proposal to eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts, this year’s affirmation of the arts and humanities is especially critical. On September 27, 2017 representatives from Morris County’s arts and cultural communities will gather at the Freeholder meeting in support of the proclamation and highlight the importance of the arts at their own events and performances during the month. Be sure to visit the online cultural calendar at www.morrisarts.org for a listing of the many cultural and arts events in Morris County.
