NBC12 VIEWPOINT: It’s ArtoberVA 2016!!!

If a city or a region doesn't have a soul, it ceases to live, grow and thrive!! I truly believe that expression through arts & culture is one of the best ways for a community to show that it has a soul!

Welcome to ArtoberVA! Artober is a month-long celebration of the arts and culture in the RVA region for the entire month of October in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities month.

The real goal of Artober is the celebrate and increase the awareness and participation of all of our citizens in what the region has to offer in arts and culture in October and throughout the entire year. This special celebration is offered by CultureWorks, their sponsors and over 150 arts and culture organizations across the region.

And this really works if you participate. So take a break and go to artoberva.com and take a look at the many events that will take place across the region.
I think of arts and culture this way. It's your right and left brain going out on a date and at the end of the date it ends with a big thank you kiss!

Give your mind, body and soul some nutrition, let's celebrate ArtoberVA!
