Event Description

CRMA has joined a global event with a simple mission: encourage more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. Visitors are invited to come to the Museum on Saturday, April 11, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. and slowly enjoy five pieces of art. At 12:00 p.m. a free, informal discussion of experiences and observations with CRMA Associate Curator Kate Kunau will take place in the CRMA Carnegie Library, outside the Museum Store. Bring your own lunch. The pieces selected for Slow Art Day will be available as a list at the front desk near the galleries. Participants are encouraged to spend ten minutes (or more) looking at an individual works. Visitors may make notes or pencil sketches on paper. The intention is to purposefully immerse yourself in art to have a meaningful experience. Normal admission rates apply for the galleries, but there are no additional charges.
