About International Artist Day
Date When Celebrated: International Artist Day is always observed on October 25
Artists of all kinds are celebrating around the world today, as it is International Artist Day, an October 25 holiday. On this day, we can and should honor and recognize all of the artists who enrich our lives and society in so many ways. It is important to recognize the contributions of artists around the world. It certainly makes sense that this should be an international event. There are so many famous artists from virtually every corner of the world. It would be a shame, had the creator of this special day limited it to one area or a single country.
So, just who is an artist? Painters and sculptors are usually the first people that come to mind. But, there are many other art fields, including acting, dancing, photographers, writers, musicians, poets, and digital artists, to name a few. There are certainly plenty more artistic fields. So, let’s use today to celebrate all artists around the world.
