Although Earth Day is April 22 and Slow Art Day was April 10, carrying the spirit of these days throughout many more may be among the best ways to observe them. Earth Day 2021 includes activities spanning three days, and taking time to linger in a Woodson Art Museum gallery and appreciate art slowly is a good idea year round.
Like the tortoise over the hare, a slow-but-sure pace is winning the race – well, a heat or two, at least. Increasingly, it seems, slow is trendy. Slow food. Slow fashion. Slow art. Saturday, April 12, marked the 4th annual international Slow Art Day, and the Woodson Art Museum was one of 238 venues participating.
