April 6 is Slow Art Day, an annual global event that aims to transform the act of viewing art. On a single day each year, people all over the world are encouraged to visit local museums and galleries to look at five pieces of art for an hour or more. After the slow-viewing exercise, participants meet for lunch to talk about their experiences.
This year, Claudia L’Amoreaux will lead our discussion, offering insights into the potentials of mindfulness, art, and technology. She is an educator and consultant whose work can be found at Mindful Digital Life.
Join us at noon at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery at Fort Mason Center to view five artworks from our group show. At 1 p.m. we will enjoy a light lunch at the Gallery as we continue to view and discuss the artworks.
Families and teens encouraged to attend.
