This came by way of an official proclamation from his office, which recognized that “the arts and humanities enhance and enrich the lives of all citizens; and affect every aspect of life in America today including the economy, social problem solving, job creation, education, creativity, and community livability. North Dakotans are encouraged to participate in arts and humanities activities and celebrate the cultural and historical riches of our state.”

North Dakota’s Arts and Humanities Month corresponds with a national celebration. The National Arts and Humanities Month is sponsored by a coalition of national organizations representing the arts and humanities. It provides all cultural organizations and agencies the opportunity to highlight the work they do for their communities. The celebration grew out of National Arts Week, which was started in 1985 by the National Endowment for the Arts and Americans for the Arts.
