From the Slow Art website: Slow Art Day was started to invite novices - and experts - to experience the art of looking at art slowly.
It's a very simple process. Volunteer hosts (not necessarily experts) invite people to come to a local museum and view a small number of works of art for 5 to 10 minutes each. Then everyone meets for lunch at a nearby cafe to talk about their experience. And all this happens the same day around the world. The date this year is Saturday April 16.
The result? Participants say they get "inspired not tired" and plan to return to that museum or gallery again and again (note: our not-so-secret agenda is to help more people experience the excitement of art and become regular patrons of their local museums).
