Art’s Birthday is an annual exchange-art event celebrated on January
17th by a loose collection of artists and artist organizations around
the world. This annual event first proposed in 1963 by French artist
Robert Filliou. He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no
art. But one day, on the 17th of January to be precise, Art was born.
According to Filliou, it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge
into a bucket of water. Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate
the presence of art in our lives.
