In an inspiring turn of events, President Obama has declared October to be National Arts & Humanities Month! In a proclamation that begins with a discussion of Norman Rockwell's iconic American paintings, the President declared, "This month, we celebrate the enlightenment and insight we have gained from the arts and humanities, and we recommit to supporting expression that challenges our assumptions, sparks our curiosity, and continues to drive us toward a more perfect union." Read the full proclamation here, and more on the LA Times Culture Monster blog.
