Art Talk – October is Arts DuPage Month

-

October is Arts DuPage Month (ADM), a countywide celebration of the arts launched in 2018 by Arts DuPage, a DuPage Foundation initiative. Inspired by the Americans for the Arts’ National Arts & Humanities Month, Arts DuPage created ADM to encourage residents to expand their relationships with arts and culture by attending the unique activities available locally.

As a coordinated campaign to increase awareness, advocacy, and community engagement, ADM becomes a conduit between the players and their audiences. Working collaboratively with individual artists, arts organizations, and community partners in preparation for ADM, Arts DuPage creates an October calendar rich in events that delight, entertain, and stimulate. As an enticement, special perks and incentives are added to all ADM events to give attendees high-quality, unique, and fun-filled experiences. Ticket discounts, musical enhancements, and free gifts are among the bonuses paired with this year’s ADM offerings. Special programs and receptions produced expressly for this movement help put the flourishing art scene in the spotlight. By upping the ante, Arts DuPage aims to motivate art lovers and attract those ambivalent toward the arts to show them an exciting world of culture and entertainment waiting to be discovered.

Paramount Theatre’s Little Shop of Horrors (Aurora), Drury Lane Theatre’s Ring of Fire (Oakbrook Terrace), and McAninch Art Center’s Tower of Power concert (Glen Ellyn) are among the discounted offerings featured.

Napervillians who want to stick closer to home can save 30% on tickets for DuPage Symphony Orchestra’s Echoes of the English Soul at Wentz Concert Hall. North Central College Fine & Performing Arts hosts The Doo Wop Project for rhythm and blues lovers and offers the Planto Company USA’s Cinderella for the young and the young at heart, both at reduced prices. At Meiley-Swallow Hall, BrightSide Theatre is on board with Stephen Sondheim’s romantic musical farce, A Little Night Music, with a $5 ticket discount by using the special code.

If these pique your interest, you can find more events and incentive details at artsdupage.org.

While the arts are plentiful in the region, many of us fall out of the habit of going to the theater or taking in a concert. By amplifying the cultural activities in the area, Arts DuPage hopes to ignite the desire to make art participation a lifelong habit.

Arts DuPage would like to thank Mayor Scott Wehrli for signing the Arts DuPage Month Proclamation and showing his support for the arts. His endorsement confirms his belief that the arts not only lift our spirits but also provide employment, enrich civic life, drive tourism, and exert a profound positive influence on the education of our children.
