Slow Art Day

Austin’s Blanton Museum of Art is having a Slow Art Day this Saturday, April 17, from 11am-1pm. Participants will look at ten works of art for ten minutes each (this is slow in today’s world) then talk about their experiences over lunch at the Blanton Cafe. It’s a movement (albeit a slow one): 45 cities are participating in  this particular international slow art day 2010, a project of the nonprofit Reading Odyssey, Inc. Odyssey is right- at ten minutes each, viewing the Blanton’s 17,000 works would take just exactly a year of 8-hour workdays.
