Finally there is now an official World Art Day! 15 April 2013 will be the first world art day. Appropriately 15 April is also Leonardo da Vinci's birthday.
Let us all get our art kit together and do something creative this weekend as a reminder that we are part of a long journey of artists. Long may the journey continue.
To quote from the official website:
Many persons could be tempted to start their first art collections and many artists young and old would stand more chances to be remembered and commemorated on such a day when the whole World would be thinking and breathing art. We envision a day in which every museum and gallery of the World with open-night events that would last till midnight… Besides the economic boost it would provoke, special affection and respect to the art world. Art and Artists would become dominant on that day and wrong doings of censorship and other even greater evils would be much harder to defend with the weight created with the “World Art Day”…
About time too!
What artist would you commemorate as the greatest?
