Did you know that there is an annual day to celebrate artists?
International Artist Day was launched in 2004 to honor the contribution artists make to society.
IAD has grown steadily in popularity around the world, and over the last few years has taken on a life of its own.
Artists and their supporters in cities everywhere celebrate IAD. With the help of council and corporate sponsors they promote festivals and events designed to increase the visibility of art and artists in a wide variety of genres from painting, to writing, music, the digital arts, and everything in between.
