Art Appreciation Week is a way of recognizing and honoring all of the talented people in Johnson County.
There are, of course, many talented people in Johnson County with a diverse background in the arts that encompass everything from painting, photography,
music, woodworking, jewelry making, pottery, and gardening.
The Johnson County Arts Council and the Johnson County Center for the Arts, are celebrating all of the different forms of artwork in the community in June.
“It’s our way of letting the talented artists know how proud the citizens of our community are of their contributions to the arts which enriches the lives of all who call Johnson County their home,” said Nancy Garrick, President of the Johnson County Arts Council
Art Appreciation Week is scheduled from June 24-June 29.
The proclamation notes, “Art enhances every aspect of life in Johnson County-improving our economy, enriching our civic life,
driving tourism, and
exerting a positive influence on the education of our children.”
Many activities are planned for the week including a garden tour.
For more information please contact the Johnson County Art Council or the Johnson County Center for the Arts.
