Slow Art Day, April 11, 2015

Thanks to everyone who came by to take a long look at the show on International Slow Art Day. If you missed it, not to worry. 

Every day can be Slow Art Day-stop by anytime for an art infusion!

What is Slow Art Day?  Slow Art Day is the global all-volunteer event whose goal is simply to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. Why Slow? When you look slowly at a piece of art it's amazing what you can see and experience.  The simple act of really looking can can unlock passion and creativity. You don't need to be an expert to unlock the secrets of art, you just need your eyes. How Does It work? One day each year – April 11 in 2015 – people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing.   This 2010 ARTNews feature article, Slow Down You Look Too Fast, provides an excellent overview of Slow Art Day.
