Slow Art Day encourages visitors to view a few pieces of art for 5 to 10 minutes and then gather together with other participants to discuss their experience over lunch. In just three years Slow Art Day has grown into a world wide celebration with Slow Art Events on every continent (yes, even Antarctica). See www.slowartday.com for more details about the history of Slow Art Day and a list of locations for 2011.
