The Muskegon Area Arts & Humanities Festival joins hundreds of arts and humanities organizations and communities across the nation in celebrating National Arts and Humanities Month throughout October. The Festival brings awareness of the arts and humanities to the people of our community through activities that honor the efforts of artists, historians, and cultural groups working to make the arts and humanities a part of everyday life.
In October 2016, various arts, humanities and community groups will collaborate on Muskegon’s 17th Annual Muskegon Area Arts & Humanities Festival. Members include the West Michigan Symphony, the Muskegon Museum of Art, the Lakeshore Museum Center, Blue Lake Public Radio, The Frauenthal Center, Muskegon Community College, Harbor Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Muskegon Civic Theatre, MAISD and the Muskegon Writers’ Center.
The festival’s mission is to celebrate, acknowledge and examine the world of ideas as they are expressed in the arts and humanities. The festival encourages the entire community to explore cultural, artistic and educational events centered on a central theme.
The theme this year is Us and Them.
