Tulip Grove is the offical site for the ARTOBER kickoff!!!! A week from today, the mayor(with Nashville's news community..paper/tv in tow) will come to Tulip Grove Elementary to participate in music & art classes...and to make the formal announcement for the first ever ARTOBER for our city! This is an amazing honor & I've been busy getting everything in tip top shape! I'll put up pictures once everything is completed & report to you how the day went!
WHAT IS ARTOBER?
Americans for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts have designated October 2011 as National Arts and Humanities Month. In recognition of this month-long celebration, the Metro Nashville Arts Commission and Now Playing Nashville will host Artober Nashville to inform and inspire the community’s awareness of and participation in an array of arts and cultural activities throughout Nashville.
The goal of Artober Nashville is for every Nashvillian to experience the arts during the month of October. The Metro Nashville Arts Commission is partnering with dozens of arts and cultural organizations to highlight the depth and breadth of arts activities with official Artober Nashville events. Activities include visual and performing arts, music, craft, film and commercial businesses presenting arts activities (such as restaurants that curate art exhibits).

Ted, you make me wish I lived and taught in Nashville! Artober sounds like so much fun and a great way for the Arts to advocate their importance to the community at large. Thanks for sharing. Maybe I'll get it started in my community!ReplyDelete
