- World Animal Day – Our Love of Animals and their Impact on Art
October 4th is World Animal Day. It dates as far back as 1925 when Heinrich Zimmermann organised the first celebration in Berlin, the mission of which is to unite the animal welfare movement and raise standards around the globe, giving a voice to those who can't speak for themselves....The date was specifically chosen as it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, beloved among Catholics and recognised for his remarkable way with animals and all living things....All around the world, animals have a strong impact on culture, and this is especially so in art. The treatment of the animal kingdom has long been raised through the arts.
