October is National Arts & Humanities Month. You can celebrate the arts by visiting an art gallery, going to a theater event or listening to live music, for example.

Americans for the Arts, a nonprofit that promotes the arts, says:

The arts and humanities play an important role in our lives—they provide enrichment and strive to provide enlightening and transformational experiences to the broadest possible cross section of the American public. The arts allow us to explore ideas, express emotions, and better appreciate cultures from around the world. National Arts & Humanities Month is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the positive impact the arts bring to our schools and communities.
