OUR STORY

Our mission: making art history more fun. 

Our mission

At Today is Art Day, our objective has always been one and the same: to make art history more fun and more accessible. Whether it’s through the captivating content we share daily on social media or through our inspiring line of products found online and in gift shops around the world, being a conversation starter has always been the keystone of what we do.

We love nothing more than a “Did you know….?” or “Hey, did you hear that story about (insert famous painter or artwork here)?”. By revealing the intriguing world of art history in fun and interesting ways through popular channels, we hope to launch discussions, debates, queries, and even pique your curiosity. We believe that art has a place in our daily lives and that we are all the better for it.

The Van Gogh figurine that started it all!

Kickstarter: a new beginning

In 2017, Today is Art Day launched its first Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund a bold, new concept: a Vincent van Gogh figurine with detachable ear. The Van Gogh figurine went viral, interest skyrocketed and the funding goal was reached! As a result, we launched a brand-new company. The Van Gogh figurine was just the beginning: more figurines soon followed through crowdfunding initiatives, including Frida Kahlo, Leonardo da Vinci, Salvador Dali and many more.

Since then, our collection has expanded to include a diverse array of unique and witty items, from board games to pins to commemorative posters and more, all designed to showcase the artistry of the Masters throughout the ages and to infuse your everyday with fine art. In short, to make sure that every day is art day!
