National Arts and Humanities Month
October is National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM), and its first weekend starts tomorrow. According to the NAHM website, it started in 1993 to celebrate culture in America. It is now the largest annual celebration of arts in the U.S. At the start of the month, Syracuse City Mayor Matt Driscoll kicked off the celebration by welcoming the members of the city's new Public Arts Commission. According to the Syracuse Public Art Ordinance, the commission consists of eleven members who review public art proposals. Click here for more information on National Arts and Humanities month.
