RE: Why art? Let's remember the day, "A Day Without Art?"

I love the idea of doing something for " A Day without art".... I seem to
remember an AIDS organization here in Ohio- doing some activities and
selling T-shirts on this day...Wouldn 't it be nice to get our student
involved in something like this that really gets them involved in thinking
about the world around them on a different level. The possibilities are
intriguing. I am also thinking about some type of fundraiser that sends the
proceeds to AIDS research. Does anyone have any ideas...also, is this day a
national one? Who establishes the date?

Help us out on "A Day Without Art!"
During the past several years I have become aware of this day, maybe in
December, where organizations have focused on this theme.
At the Getty, for example, objects of art were covered with black fabric
on that day last year.
I can still recall the empty feeling of being in front of an item in the
gallery that was not visable because of the black fabric. As I walked
into another gallery, a painting was covered.
This was through the Getty.
Okay, readers. Help us fill in the blanks so we can ALL have our "A Day
Without Art" this year.
