This year's theme for Art Museum Day is Art Museums Foster Vibrant Communities. This theme celebrates the vital role art museums play as cultural, educational, and economic anchors, helping make their communities great places to live and work. Now, more than ever before, it is critical that we come together in our shared belief that the arts are a crucial element of civil society, essential to the well-being of our communities and our democracies.
