A group of nine galleries in Bloomington, Illinois is banding together to celebrate the first citywide Slow Art Day planned anywhere in the world.
In 2020 during the pandemic, Pamala Eaton, owner and gallerist of Eaton Gallery in Bloomington, Illinois, was both the first in Bloomington to celebrate Slow Art Day and the first in the world to do so with a ‘drive-by’ window display (done because of the pandemic). With the pandemic still raging in 2021, Eaton hosted another drive-by.
This year, however, she organized eight other galleries to join her in *another* first – a citywide celebration of Slow Art Day in this community that is an important link in the historic U.S. Route 66.
See the map of all the galleries and read more about their citywide plans in this article in Bloomington’s newspaper, The Pantagraph.
We hope this inaugural citywide Slow Art Day event is just the first of many citywide celebrations to come.
P.S. If you get some good press, or are doing something innovative with your Slow Art Day 2022 and would like to share it in advance with the global community, then please get in touch.
