America’s future is bright—and our Nation’s spirit of reinvention has long allowed us to pursue progress that knows no bounds.

As artists open our hearts and minds, they embolden our dreams, connect us in common purpose, and inspire us to reach for the tomorrow we seek.

More than anyone, our young people have the ability to renew the world we share, and my Administration is dedicated to empowering them through the arts and humanities so they can chart bold paths and write America’s next great chapters.

                Proclamation 9331 of September 28, 2015

                
National Arts and Humanities Month, 2015

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Over centuries of change--through trial and triumph--
                the arts and humanities have chronicled history in ways 
                that have brought the past to life and provided a vivid 
                vision for our journey forward. Today, we continue to 
                live in an ever-changing world, and the arts and 
                humanities help us experience it in truer colors and 
                tones. When we harness our artistic creativity--from 
                canvases to concertos--we can give shape to our 
                emotions and channel our innermost hopes. During 
                National Arts and Humanities Month, we celebrate 
                artistic expression in all its forms and honor the ways 
                they help define the great American story.

                America's future is bright--and our Nation's spirit of 
                reinvention has long allowed us to pursue progress that 
                knows no bounds. The arts and humanities generate 
                opportunities for us to individually and collectively 
                reflect on our beliefs and disrupt our assumptions. As 
                artists open our hearts and minds, they embolden our 
                dreams, connect us in common purpose, and inspire us to 
                reach for the tomorrow we seek.

                As our society progresses, we must never underestimate 
                the power of young minds, and as a Nation we must give 
                our daughters and sons every opportunity to grow, 
                thrive, and explore the heights of their imagination. 
                If we continue to instill in them the optimism of 
                America's promise--that all things are possible for all 
                people--they will grow up believing, as they should, 
                that nothing is out of their reach. More than anyone, 
                our young people have the ability to renew the world we 
                share, and my Administration is dedicated to empowering 
                them through the arts and humanities so they can chart 
                bold paths and write America's next great chapters.

                Every stroke of the brush, stitch of the needle, or 
                moment of the memoir uniquely marks our society and 
                contributes to our national character. This month, we 
                recognize the ways the arts and humanities have forever 
                changed our country, and we recommit to ensuring every 
                American has the opportunity and the freedom to 
                question, discover, and create.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim October 2015 as 
                National Arts and Humanities Month. I call upon the 
                people of the United States to observe this month with 
                appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs to 
                celebrate the arts and the humanities in America.

                United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.
