Slow Art Day 2011

Apr

11

It is time to slow down and smell the roses – or, in this case,  look at the art. Please join us at the Cummer for International Slow Art Day on Saturday, April 16th from 10:30 – 12:30 to view 5 pre-selected pieces of  art, then stay and enjoy lunch from 12:30-1:30 (your purchase off the menu) at the Tree Cup Cafe to enjoy open converstation about the art with fellow art lovers.

Did you know that the typical art viewers only spends about eight seconds in front of a work of art?  Slow Art Day is a global grassroots art celebration designed to inspire people to look at art for a longer period of time, seeing the work in its entirety. Looking often reveals details not registered by the viewer at first glance, elements that can bring a work of art to life.

Take 5 – 10 minutes each to look, really look at the follwing pieces of art:

 

 

    • Café L’Avenue, Richard Emil Miller

Call Art Connections @ 899-6003 to dedicate your attendance.  See you on Saturday, April 16th!
