Art is all around us whether we recognize it or not.
Today, we acknowledge the art and artists of the world.
Art has been an important part of the human experience for time out of mind. The first records of the world are not written in books, but are captured in paintings, sculptures, and music that helps to paint a picture of world lost to the past. Whether it’s revealing a style of dress worn in a period by the clothing worn in the painting, or the slight heresy’s hidden in some of the worlds’ most religious works, art can reveal a hidden or lost side of us to the present.
International Artists Day honors those creative souls that will leave a record of today for the future that can’t be captured in history books. The anguish and joy of the human soul is portrayed through the haunting tones of a melody, the violence and fury caught in a photograph, or the serene gaze of a statue staring off into eternity.
