artday is a worldwide celebration of art scheduled to take place each year on the second day of July. Why July 2nd? Because it's at the very center of the year just as art is at the very center of the word "earth" as well as a central element in so many events in our lives. (Another neat trick: take the "h" in earth and put it up front and what do you get? Heart! Art's gotta have heart! Art's in our hearts?) The creators of artday, the artday network, are dedicated to democratic principles and faithfully ignore all differences in age, sex, race, religion and nationality. July 2 is off center in leap-years, so there are no artdays when February gets its extra day.
