April 15 marks the World Art Day. The observance of World Art Day is an international event which aims to celebrate fine arts that exist in many forms and spheres annually. The day is to promote awareness of creative activity worldwide. The first observation of World Art Day took place in 2012. In 2012, a proposal was sent by several notable global artists like Bedri Baykam of Turkey, Rosa Maria Burillo Velasco of Mexico, Anne Pourny of France, Liu Dawei of China, among others at the 17th General Assembly of the International Association of Art (IAA) to celebrate April 15 as World Art Day. The proposal was unanimously accepted by the General Assembly. Not many people know that April 15 was selected as it is the birthdate of Leonardo da Vinci – one of the world’s greatest artists. No official theme is declared for 2020 by International Association of Art (IAA), official partner of the UNESCO, under whose supervision and leadership, the event of World Art Day is celebrated.
