Fun-A-Day is a simple concept that produces beautiful results. Participants choose a project and produce one piece of artwork every day for the entire month of January. The 31 resulting pieces create a narrative outlining each artist’s journey through the first month of the year. Projects vary from lighthearted to serious, high-brow to low-brow.
Fun-A-Day seeks to remove the barriers to creativity by offering opportunities and invitations for participation. The project seeks to create a welcoming forum for people to share what they do, to strengthen existing communities of artists, and to kick-start new ones. Fun-a-Day is an open invitation to foster a daily creative practice. It began as a way for the originators of the project to keep each other motivated and maintain their creative practices through the month of January. The project spread as others embraced the idea and vowed to not only complete their project, but to encourage their friends to do the same. Since its inception in 2004, the project has shown tens of thousands of pieces by hundreds of artists.
