National Arts In Education Week

North Carolina Arts In Education Week

September 12 - 18, 2021


In 2010, Congress passed House Resolution 275 designating the week beginning with the second Sunday in September as National Arts in Education Week: a national celebration of the transformative power of the arts in education. Governor Roy Cooper has proclaimed 

At Transylvania Community Arts Council, we are celebrating through incredible arts classes for youth and a thriving Arts in Schools Program, as well as an annual exhibit of art created by Transylvania County Schools students, and we would encourage all supporters of arts, culture, and education to join with us - as well as our elected officials and education leaders.

What we know is simple: students attend school more often when they have access to the arts; parents and families engage with the schools when schools embrace the arts; grades improve and dropout rates decrease. And the halls are filled with music, art, theatre and dance!

As we celebrate National Arts in Education Week, we should reward ourselves for our accomplishments, but we should also remember the work we have to do. How can local school districts help provide equitable arts opportunities for all of our young people? How can we support parents, families and the community in providing more opportunities for engagement?  It's up to us - all of us - to take a stand and lead.  Stronger arts programs create stronger communities.

City of Brevard Public Art Policy​

"In order to beautify public areas, enhance the quality of life for Brevard citizens, attract tourism, promote arts and culture, and encourage businesses to locate within the city, thus expanding Brevard’s economic base, it is the policy of the City of Brevard to promote public art, where appropriate, through the implementation of a clarified process and design guidelines."

In February 2021, the Brevard City Council adopted a Public Art Policy and Application Process, which defines "public art" as "art on publicly- or privately-owned non-residential property that is visible from public streets and pedestrian walkways to be approved by City Council prior to installation."

To learn more about the Public Art Policy and Application Process, see the links below.
