Art's Birthday

In Robert Filliou's poem "The history of art whispered," Filliou claimed the birthday of art to be on January 17th. The birth of art has been celebrated each year since Fillou's 1963 poem in spontaneous celebrations and festivities all around the world and has raised awareness in support of many causes including "International school holidays and paid leave for workers."

January 17th, 1963 was declared in Filliou's poem as the millionth anniversary of art and so it this year, in 2013, that we celebrate "artless" according to the wishes of Filliou, the 1,000,050th birthday of art.
