Slow Art Day!
The Beeville Art Museum joins 165 venues worldwide in hosting Slow Art Day.
What is Slow Art Day?
Slow Art Day is the global all-volunteer event with a simple mission; help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
How does it work?
One day each year, April 11th in 2015, people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly.
Participants @ BAM look at five works of art and then together in Gallery N to talk about their experience. The Museum is providing snacks and feel free to bring your lunch!
That's it! Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing.
