Today is Slow Art Day

What is Slow Art Day, you ask? Slow Art Day is the global all-volunteer event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
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 meet together over lunch to talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. Slow Art Day is made up entirely of volunteers.
The Gray Loft Gallery celebrated it in the true spirit of the event.
