"Art's birthday" (original French: L'Anniversaire de l'art) is an annual event first proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou.

Filliou first proposed "Art's birthday" in 1963, on his own birthday. He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on January 17th to be precise, Art was born. Filliou says it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water.
