On Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, Mayor Adler declared November as Austin Art Month. The proclamation was made in an effort to support the local arts scene and promote organizations that are hosting art-related events for the community in November.
The visual arts scene is growing fast and becoming a visceral part of the city. The proclamation aligns with the booming entertainment industry and promotes the local art scene.
“Austin is a creative, innovative city. We’re good at doing things in new ways, and art helps us see the world in new ways. The creative arts are absolutely vital to who we are as a city and what we can offer the world, so I’m proud to declare November Austin Art Month,” said Mayor Adler.
