39 Art Day (Thank You Art Day) - Liverpool March 9 2007


Please take some time to visit the galleries, appreciate art and take advantage of special offers.

“39 Art Day” (Thank You Art Day) is a special day to appreciate, promote, and otherwise positively engage ourselves in contemporary art worldwide.

39 Art Day was initiated by a Germany-based Japanese artist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu ( ) in 2000 to foster the appreciation of contemporary art in Japan, the country where support for contemporary art is still weak at best, if not altogether absent.

In Japanese, "thank you" rhymes with 3/9 (san-kyuu), because there is no "th" sound in Japanese and the Japanese people tend to pronounce "th" as "s." Thus, the Day of 39 Art on March 9.
