International Artist Day was launched in 2004 to honor the contribution artists make to society.

We’ve grown steadily in popularity around the world, and over the last few years have seen our events hosted across North America and in countries like Saudi Arabia, India, Spain, Puerto Rico, and many more.

Artists and their supporters in cities everywhere celebrate International Artist Day. With the help of municipal and corporate sponsors they promote festivals and events designed to increase the visibility of art and artists in a wide variety of genres from painting, to writing, music, the digital arts, and everything in between.

Our mandate is very simple;

To celebrate the contribution all artists make to society by promoting and raising their credibility and visibility locally and around the world.

That’s it!
