“While it was disappointing to have to postpone our beloved Art Month in May due to the pandemic, we know we are one of many organizations forced to evolve and change the way we provide services and programs to our community,” said CAA Executive Director Jennifer Steele. “Participating in National Arts & Humanities month through virtual and safe in-person environments allows us to continue to celebrate our traditional events like ArtsQuest, introduce new programming, and also be a part of a national Arts community when connection is needed more than ever. We hope this format will draw more members and artists to the CAA as we enter our recovery phase and reimagine the future of the organization and the role art plays in all our lives.”
National Arts & Humanities Month was established in 1993 by Americans for the Arts 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 participation in the arts and humanities.
