International Artist Day Festival - White Rock

White Rock
White Rock , British Columbia
V4B 2P7
Websitehttp://www.internationalartistday.com
Toll-free

Daily from October 24, 2014 to October 26, 2014

Although art is generally thought to encompass painting, sculpture, writing and music, in fact art in some form or another impacts on us all on a daily basis. Centuries of our human condition have been chronicled and depicted by artists. Our major galleries are filled to overflowing and yet the artist remains an enigma.

October 25, International Artist Day, is to honour the contribution artists have and are making to society. Use this day as the opportunity to take an artist to lunch, buy that painting that's been haunting you for months, visit a gallery, go to the symphony or participate in something creative that is 'outside the box' of your day to day life.
