Slow Art Day Celebration at PEM

Once again, our wonderful neighbor, the Peabody Essex Museum, is participating in a world-wide event of considerable importance. I have heard of the Slow Food Movement, but not Slow Art. However, this really interests me, and I am hopeful to be able to participate, so I hope to see you there!

PEM HOSTS INTERNATIONAL SLOW ART DAY CELEBRATION

SLOW DOWN AND TAKE A CLOSER LOOK

SATURDAY APRIL 17th, 2010 11:00 am - 2:30 pm

SALEM, MA–Experience a museum in a whole new way with Slow Art Day at the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM). On Saturday, April 17th, PEM joins 46 organizations worldwide in inviting visitors to take their time and take a closer look at art. Championed by Michael Kimmelman, chief art critic at the New York Times, Slow Art Day is part of a global grassroots movement that aims to enhance visual awareness and critical thinking through the act of careful looking.

In celebration of the opening of PEM’s newest exhibition, The Kennedys Portrait of a Family: Photographs by Richard Avedon, Slow Art Day participants will view a selection of artworks that explore themes of power.

A casual lunch and discussion follows in the Museum’s Atrium CafĂ©.
