Art Break Day takes place ANNUALLY on the FIRST FRIDAY in September. Art Sites are set up in cities around the world and everyone is invited to sit down, take a break, and make art for FREE! Join us for the 11th Annual Event on Friday, September 3, 2021 and let's get creative!

Stay as long as you like...drop in anytime during the session...share who you are, what you are making, where you are creating from or just stay silent and work with the creative energy of the collective.
Art Is Moving, a national non-profit organization, created Art Break Day to make art accessible to a wider audience and to connect communities through art. Art Break Day is about everyone. a healthy, vibrant, and well balanced society is one in which everyone regularly participates in the arts. This online event is a part of the national observance on September 3rd.
Everyone is an artist and can and should create art by making it available in as many locations as possible at one time and offering an open invitation for participation. Not only is everyone given the opportunity to be an artist and create art on Art Break Day, they become a part of the social sculpture that is Art Break Day. Each art space is a blank canvas awaiting human interaction.
As each participant chooses to sit down, interact with the space and one another, he/she acts as a brush stroke on a canvas, changing the composition of the art space, the public space, and adding to the social sculpture’s composition. As artworks are created and participants install them where they choose the public space and surrounding environment witness the change. This participation in and observation of artistic creation produces a society that benefits from a culture integrated in art.
