Bring More Light into Your World
Art and Humanities Month Exhibit
The President’s Proclamation on this year’s National Arts and Humanities Month recognizes the importance of the arts during the Pandemic. The arts not only help us to understand our experiences but lifts our spirits. The arts indeed have the ability to heal our collective wounded spirits.
According to the proclamation, the arts have been recognized as a foundation of our Republic since its beginning. George Washington wrote in 1781, “The arts and sciences are essential to the prosperity of the State and to the ornament and happiness of human life.”
During Arts and Humanities Month, the Art Guild of Orange Park presents the juried exhibit, “Creativity” at the Jewish Community Alliance in Jacksonville, Florida. The Art Show features still lifes, portraits, abstract art and landscapes.
Portland Head Lighthouse in Maine is one of the “Most Photographed Lighthouses” in the world. It is listed as one of the most iconic lighthouses.
Built in 1791, Portland Lighthouse was the first lighthouse completed under President George Washington. His Secretary of Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, personally administered lighthouses. Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a native of Portland Maine, visited Portland Head Lighthouse several times.
