About "Thank You Art Day" (39art):

Thank You Art Day' - The Day of 39@rt is a holiday to appreciate, promote, and otherwise positively engage ourselves in contemporary art. It was established by Japanese artist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu in 2000 to foster the appreciation of contemporary art in Japan, and it became world-wide event now. Last year, 16 museums and 141 art galleries/spaces, as well as individual artists and Internet-based entities in The world , offer special tie-in programs on March 9.

In Japanese, 3/9 (san-kyuu) sounds how Japanese people pronouce "Thank You" because there are no "th" sound in Japanese language. That's how "Thank You Art Day" is started!
