Join Radio CKUT for the Only Art’s Birthday Celebration in Town
“One million years ago, on January 17, someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water and lo, ART was born!” – Robert Filliou, 1963
Art's Birthday was originally proposed in 1964 by artist Robert Filiou as a celebration of Art. Arts organizations all over the world celebrate Art's Birthday with parties and performances. CKUT has produced special programming in celebration of Art's Birthday since 2007.
According to our calculations Art will be turning 1 000 048 this year, and once again CKUT will be ringing in the occasion. From the serious to the silly, the night will be a celebration of art.
Expect live musical performances and shenanigans, visual and sound art installations and a DJ'd dance party to bring the night to a close.
