New Delhi: World Art Day is celebrated on April 15 every year. This day was declared by the International Association of Art (IAA/AIAP), a partner of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in order to promote awareness of international celebration of fine arts.
Art has always been a powerful medium of expression and exploring emotions. World Art Day was proclaimed at the 40th session of UNESCO’s General Conference in 2019. On World Art Day, in a message, Audrey Azoulay, the Director General of UNESCO said, ” Bringing people together, inspiring, soothing and sharing: these are the powers of art, the importance of which has been made emphatically obvious during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic”.
”With hundreds of thousands of people directly affected by the virus and billions more either in lockdown or battling the pandemic on the front lines, this World Art Day is a timely reminder that art has the power to unite and connect in times of crisis”.
World Art Day is celebrated on Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday in order to honour the artist. According to IAA, Da Vinci was chosen as a symbol of world peace and freedom of expression. Here are some wishes, messages and quotes you can share on the occasion of World Art Day:
