New Orleans is currently sponsoring *7* – cross that out – now *9* – Slow Art Day 2018 events this Saturday (two more signed up after this post went live including the Ogden Art Museum).
As a result, New Orleans beats New York (incl Brooklyn) (4), Toronto (4), Washington, DC (4), and a city about the same population as New Orleans – Turkuu, Finland (4) – as well as London (3), Antwerp (3), and Hong Kong (3).
So, the ‘big easy’ has gone big.
This is in part due to the wonderful efforts of Matthew Weldon Showman who runs the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans and also is President of the Arts District New Orleans. Matthew signed up both his gallery and encouraged other galleries who are part of the Arts District.
As a result, Slow Art Day in New Orleans will happen in five different galleries, one historic house, and three different museums.
