The Art Break Day Spectrum: No Site is too large or too small!

Our 5th Annual Art Break Day is just over a month away! This year our goal is to have 42 worldwide Art Break Day locations. We are excited to say we are getting really close! With our goal in mind we wanted to open up the conversation about what an Art Break Day site can be.

What does an Art Break Day have to look like?

How big does it have to be?

Over the last five years we have had festival style Art Break Day pop ups in places like San Francisco and San Rafael. This style consists of a canopy, tables, and chairs with oodles of art supplies set up in heavy traffic areas in cities.

Don DeLeon, an attorney, is having a DIY Art Break sites at his apartment building in Santa Monica. Here’s his vision:

“I live in a historic courtyard building in Santa Monica and we have a great group of neighbors that gets together as community. I though Art Break Day would be perfect to bring to the courtyard. I am going to have more of a DIY self Art Break Day. Have art supplies on the community table and have folks take random Art Breaks through out the day.”

Lisa Rasmussen (Co-Founder of Art is Moving’s Art Break Day) and her sister art organization (Art 4 All People) are having their Art Break Day site in the creative city of West Hollywood. It will be festival style canopied site in park next to the WEHO Library.

So, here’s the gist.

Art Break Day sites can be large or small. From an intimate small space to a highly trafficked public square. You decide what inspires you and what you want to manifest.
