We interpret art to be one specific piece when in reality there’s art everywhere we go from painting, music, cinema, buildings, etc. On April 15th art is honored all around or known as World Art Day which was created to admire the beauty around us.

The International Association of Art (I.A.A.) held a General Assembly organized by the organization, announced this honorable mention in honor of the world famous artist Leonardo da Vinci.

Da Vinci was born on April 15th, 1452 in Anchiano, Italy. He was smart which also guided him to his most famous pieces that struck people on how fluently the paintings appeared to the viewers. Da Vinci was living in a city at 14 of widespread Christianity, and that’s where his first painting was originated from along with many other pieces.

Da Vinci is a symbolic representative of freedom of expression, world peace, tolerance, and with an importance to many other art fields. This day was to celebrate his birthday but as well as other fine arts that deserve the dedication.

April 15th of 2012 was the first day celebrated on World Art Day with support from committees and 150 artists. More events took place in Europe where exhibits, museums, and conferences were held but in 2013, the rise of celebrations had begun.

The celebrations are international on this day but fine arts can be considered more than just one day. It would be appreciative to look at some of the hard work that was put into the forms of art you see today.
