October is Discover Jersey Arts Month

Governor Murphy has officially declared October 2021 Discover Jersey Arts Month!

“During recent times of crisis, people have turned to the arts for hope and healing, and our State’s artists and arts organizations have answered the call in innovative and inspiring ways,” the Governor stated in the official gubernatorial proclamation. As stated in the proclamation, New Jersey recognizes that the state’s overall recovery and continued vitality is not complete without the arts.

You can read the uplifting proclamation here, in which the Governor expresses the importance of the arts industry in New Jersey’s revitalization and the reasons we have come to treasure the arts even more these past two years.
