Slow Art Day was established in 2010 as day to encourage people to visit their local art museums and galleries and take time to really look at and see the art. The idea is to look at 5 pieces of art for at least 10 minutes each and open yourself up to whatever you might discover. Don’t worry about what you are supposed to see or feel; just let whatever comes to you come.
To participate, you can go to one of the official venues or visit any gallery, museum (like the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, where I teach yoga on Mondays) or sculpture park. You might be surprised at what you notice.
