History of World Art Day
The IAA (International Association of Art) designed the day April 15 as World Art Day. The main idea is to create a day for all the lovers of art and artists in the world to celebrate, not only the members of International Association of Art (IAA). The aim is to create a day to emphasise the importance of art in the lives of everyone, of all ages and races. Every art centre, gallery, University, Museum, and artist are free to organize their activities. April 15 was chosen in honour of Leonardo Da Vinci’s birthday, who is considered a symbol of multiculturalism, free expression, world peace, tolerance, and visionary in the world of arts. Events on this day can vary from special museum hours to conferences and special exhibitions. Hence World Art Day will permit to all the art lovers and artists of the world, to feel the preciousness and the power of art simultaneously and let all of us breathe it is vital for all the nations of the world.
