On July 5, Tallinn Biennial celebrated "The Great Art Day" ("Suur kunstipäev") on Tallinn's Freedom Square. Although the weather was rainy, approximately 20 artists introduced their creations and activities to the visitors from all over Estonia.
During the day, a number of performances which happened on Tallinn's Freedom Square, including meeting with the artists themselves and few artists created new masterpieces on the spot, "Aktuaalne kaamera" reported on Sunday.
Andra Orn, the head organizer of Tallinn Biennial, said: "The purpose of the Great Art Day is to be part of the audience. It is important to bring out the aspects of art from the people and I am very thankful for everybody who came to see the gallery on this rainy day and honored the value of the art institutions. It is very essential for us that the audience give that kind of attention to the art world."
Within the last few years on Art Day, only art organizations and galleries were portrayed but this year, artists from Tartu, Viljandi, and Virumaa introduced their masterpieces.
Tallinn Biennial has grown out from Tallinn Art Week and is taking place for the first time in 2020 as a pilot project. More information about Tallinn Biennial can be found here.
