Introduction SWAN Day/Support Women Artists Now Day is a new international holiday that celebrates women artists. It is an annual event taking place on the last Saturday of March (Women’s History Month) and the surrounding weeks. The official date of the Seventh International SWAN Day is Saturday, March 29, 2014. By focusing attention on the work of women artists, SWAN Day helps people imagine what the world might be like if women’s art and perspectives were fully integrated into all of our lives. People celebrate this new holiday by participating in SWAN Day events and by making donations to their favorite women artists. The long term goal of SWAN Day is to inspire communities around the world to find new ways to recognize and support women artists as a basic element of civic planning. There have been over 1000 SWAN Day events in 23 countries in the first six years of SWAN Day. SWAN Day has been officially recognized by the mayors of New York, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, DC, and several other cities.
