Arkın Creative Arts and Design University (ARUCAD) Rector Prof. Dr. Asım Vehbi published a special message on the occasion of April 15, World Art Day, organised by the International Art Association and celebrated by art lovers with many important events every year.
Vehbi said, “World Art Day is also the birthday of Leonardo Da Vinci, who is known as one of the most important people in history. As a leader in multiculturalism, freedom of expression, world peace and tolerance in his artistic life, Da Vinci once said, “Art is the queen of all sciences that transmit knowledge to all generations of the world.” The artist is influenced by the bond he establishes with the society in which he lives and becomes a mirror of that society with the works he produces. There is a constant relationship between the artist and society. At ARUCAD, the only art and design-oriented university in the region, our students are trained to blend the cultural heritage of the society they live in with the knowledge they have acquired, which they will then transfer to the next generations through the works produced. This protects the cultural heritage of society. I believe that the individuals we raise with this philosophy will enable society to better understand itself and its environment, to tolerate different opinions, and to contribute to making the world a better place. While accomplishing this important mission, we will always be leading the way. Happy World Art Day”.
