“Art is a nation’s most precious heritage. For it is in our works of art that we reveal to ourselves and to others the inner vision which guides us as a nation. And where there is no vision, the people perish.” --- President Lyndon B. Johnson

This year we are once again celebrating National Arts and Humanities Month by inviting you to nominate an arts/culture organization in your community to be highlighted on the NEA Facebook page between October 1-31. Each day’s featured organization will be selected by members of the NEA Public Affairs staff.

Who can be nominated?

Any arts or culture organization. (No self-nominations, please.)

How do I make the nomination?

Just drop an e-mail to beetep[AT]arts[DOT]gov with:


·Your name and the name of your community

· The name of the organization you’re nominating and its website URL

· Five words that you think best describe the organization you’re nominating

· Why you think this organization deserves to be in the spotlight (up to 100 words)

How do I find out if an organization I’ve nominated has been selected?

Like the National Endowment for the Arts on Facebook and check our page each day in October to see who’s in the spotlight!
