The City of Rockville’s Recreation and Parks Department will help celebrate National Arts and Humanities Month in October.
The Mayor and Council are scheduled to issue a proclamation for the month at their Monday, Oct. 4 meeting.
National Arts and Humanities Month is a coast-to-coast collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. A celebration of the month was launched by Americans for the Arts more than 30 years ago as National Arts Week, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1993, it was re-established by Americans for the Arts and national arts partners as a monthlong celebration.
To help celebrate, you can visit one or more of the city’s public works of art — see the map of public art installations at www.rockvillemd.gov/AIPP — or enjoy the shows and performances listed on www.rockvillemd.gov/calendar.ASPX!
If you’re a member of the city’s arts community, join the Cultural Arts Commission at their listening session, 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13.
