June 3, 2009 – Hollywood: International Art Day falls this year on August 14, 2009, the second Friday in August. The theme is “Celebrate Artists!”
It is the artists who carry and enhance the honor and glory of the society. By elevating and supporting artists, by giving them stability and position, aesthetics keep a society alive and thriving.
To celebrate artists, this 11th anniversary of international Art Day, Artists For A Better World International and the Founder of the Art Day Holiday, Becky Mate, encourage all to send AFABW Int your mail art (hand-decorated postcards or envelopes.)
Here are the details:
1. Mail the mail art so it arrives by 8-13-09 (allow time for postal service in your country or state), along with your email and regular address, to:
ARTISTS FOR A BETTER WORLD (AFABW) INTERNATIONAL
c/o Becky Mate
PO Box 11081
Glendale, CA 91226
2. The mail art will be displayed at the annual Founder’s “Art and Chocolate” Art Day Celebration in Glendale, California, Home of Art Day, by international Art Day Founder and Artist for a Better World executive Becky Mate.
3. A panel of art lovers will select the top mail art. The criteria will include aesthetics, colors, imagination and the theme of “Celebrate Artists.”
4. The top mail art will be featured at the 9th Annual Artists for a Better World Arts Festival in Hollywood, California in November of 2009. If you can attend the festival you’re in for a treat. If you cannot make it, your mail art will be your ambassador.
5. Additionally, the top mail art will be featured on the AFABW Int website.
6. On August 14, 2009, knowing you’ve participated in a worldwide effort to celebrate artists, have a Happy Art Day!
