Art’s Birthday – an annual exchange-art event celebrated on January 17th by a loose collection of artists and artist organizations around the world.
“Art’s Birthday” is first proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou.
He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on the 17th of January to be precise, Art was born. According to Filliou, it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Modest beginnings, but look at us now.
Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. In recent years, the idea has been taken up by a loose network of artists and friends around the world.
In the meantime, the PCU Committee have selected the 15 best drawings and started to receive the first ones for the expositions.
From 19 to 21 October during the 2018 PIUTT, the exposition of the 2nd Antwerp University and Panathlon Drawing Contest was presented in the Hall of theDubna University Sports Complex.

At the Closing Ceremony was held a gift draw among the voters.
