April 15 is World Art Day! Art is something that naturally draws us together, and in an effort to bring joy to #YYC we’re excited to reveal CHROMA On The Rise in recognition of #WorldArtDay!
Calgary is bursting with artistic talent, and we had the pleasure of working with four emerging artists for #CHROMAOnTheRise. Learn more about the artists, and their pieces.
About World Art Day
World Art Day is an international celebration of the fine arts, which was declared by the International Association of Art (IAA/AIAP), a partner of UNESCO, to promote awareness of creative activity worldwide. The first World Art Day was held on April 15th, 2012, a date chosen in honor of Leonardo da Vinci‘s birthday. As a symbol of world peace, freedom of expression, tolerance and brotherhood, da Vinci is also a testament to the influence of the Fine Arts on other fields. In the United States, World Art Day was officially held for the first time in the City of Los Angeles on April 15th, 2015, and yearly thereafter. In 2017, IAA USA, the official U.S.-based chapter of the IAA, was formed. The Association looks forward to facilitating World Art Day celebrations locally, and nationwide.
