Arts & Humanities Month

 

The College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University invites you to join its faculty, staff, and students in celebration of National Arts & Humanities Month.

The arts and humanities hold an abiding value to us as citizens and human beings. They help us understand ourselves as individuals and as people who see the world differently. They help us talk about fundamental values and tough issues.

The arts and humanities teach us to think creatively, critically, and independently, to communicate effectively, and to respect individual and cultural differences. They foster an understanding of the human condition and a desire for free exchange of ideas. They invoke social change. They uplift.

Throughout October, the College of Liberal Arts will host performances, lectures, exhibitions, and other special events that offer opportunities to learn about, experience, and participate in the arts and humanities. Please join us at the scheduled events listed here and be sure to check the website often for additions to the calendar.
