Each October, organizations throughout the United States celebrate culture in America during National Arts & Humanities Month. Coordinated by Americans for the Arts, National Arts & Humanities Month grew out of National Arts Week, which the National Endowment for the Arts and Americans for the Arts started in 1985. The event became a month-long celebration in 1993. This year, several University of Florida (UF) colleges and organizations have partnered to lead the celebration on campus.
“Engaging with the arts and humanities piques our curiosity, challenges our assumptions and urges us to see the world with new and different eyes. This is essential to the reasoned search for truth that is at the core of higher education. Such engagement also expands our mental toolkit, helping us to think both seriously and originally about our purpose and pursuits at every stage of life.” - UF President Kent Fuchs
On Friday, Oct. 12, 2018 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., spontaneous acts of culture will "pop-up" throughout the Plaza of the Americas.
