The arts facilitate our exploration of ideas and expression of emotions and help us better appreciate cultures from around the world. National Arts and Humanities Month is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the positive impact the arts bring to our schools and communities.

National Arts and Humanities Month grew out of National Arts Week, which was initiated in 1985 by the National Endowment for the Arts and Americans for the Arts. It evolved into a month-long activity in 1993 and is now the largest national celebration of the arts and humanities in America.
Every October, the Buffalo State College campus community joins the nation in organizing the College's annual month-long celebration. College events include student and faculty musical performances, theatrical productions, poetry and dramatic readings, art exhibitions, panel discussions, lectures, demonstrations, and special exhibitions.
