Welcoming World Art Day

Art has been a driving force for innovation and nurturing creativity, as well as a powerful tool for shedding light on cultural hegemony. We learned to appreciate both its impressive visual aesthetics and its ability to influence society at large. Art is at the very heart of everything we do, whether it’s preparing a meal, decorating a house, or even public speaking. Celebrating World Art Day on April 15 purposefully coincides with Leonardo Da Vinci’s Birthday, a master of multiple mediums and one of the most notable visionaries in the field.
In celebration of this wonderful day, we look at some of the projects that help better the international creative community, ones that unite artists and make a true difference. What’s best is that they’re all right here – under the .ART umbrella. We hope they inspire you and fuel your imagination. Enjoy!
