Happy #NationalArtDay! Today we celebrate the birthday of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, and art as a creative human expression of beauty, history, revolutions, and rebellions.
This day honors all forms of art — paintings, sculpture, photography, architecture, music, and more, and through this celebration we show our respect for the passion and creativity in all artists, acknowledging that there is no history or culture without art.
