Slow Art Day
Some estimates say that people spend only 8 seconds looking at a given artwork in a museum. Slow down and enjoy the artworks of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts 102nd Annual Juried Exhibition on Slow Art Day.
Visit Mystic Museum of Art’s galleries between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and pick up our Slow Art Guide, a handpicked selection of art curated by MMoA’s staff. Then join others for lunch at nearby Bartleby’s at 1 pm to talk about your experience. Lunch is at your own expense.
Slow Art Day is a global all-volunteer event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. Founded by Phil Terry, this project began in the summer of 2009 to encourage people to spend more time looking at fewer artworks. Now in 2013, over 100 museums and galleries world-wide participate in Slow Art Day.
