At the City Council Meeting on October 3, Mayor Al Litman Presented the Proclamation that October is “Arts Month in Mesquite,” to the Virgin Valley Artists’ Association, as follows:

“For more than three decades, the month of October has been recognized as National Arts and Humanities Month by thousands of arts and cultural organizations, communities, and states across the country, as well as by the White House and Congress.   It is a month-long celebration with the goals of focusing on the arts at local, state and national levels, encouraging individuals and organizations to participate in the arts, allowing governments and businesses to show their support of the arts, and raising public awareness about the role the arts and humanities play in our communities and lives.

The Mesquite nonprofit arts industry strengthens our local economy by generating significant economic activity annually through involvement in tourism, entertainment, business and volunteerism, and the arts community of Mesquite has joined in the recognition of the National Arts and Humanities month and has scheduled a full month of activities highlighting Arts and Culture within our community.

NOW THEREFORE, we, the Mayor and City Council of the City of Mesquite, Nevada, proudly proclaim October 2018, as “Arts Month in Mesquite” and call upon the citizens of Mesquite to participate in and celebrate the artistic riches available in Mesquite.”
