Robins AFB Library: American Artists Appreciation Month

Art Collection

About American Artists Appreciation Month

American Artist Appreciation Month is celebrated across the U.S. throughout August. From Andy Warhol to Georgia O’Keeffe, America has been home to many extraordinary artists throughout history. American Artist Appreciation Month was started with the simple aim to celebrate artists and the incredible work that they do. Art is not just something beautiful to look at, it also reflects the human condition, emotions, and ambitions. Art portrays what we are trying to convey when words fail. Celebrate the month by discovering new American artists or revisiting the artworks that you love. You can even check out local museums and galleries to support local artists. (Source)
