The Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, VA saw a terrific turnout for their Slow Art Day in 2019. 50+ participants attended, and enjoyed the art of slowing down.
To generate a strong turnout, they decided to offer free admission for Slow Art Day participants, and they also increased social media promotion.
Participants gave quite positive feedback including this visitor:
“I really enjoyed the concept, and taking the time to [slow down]….it forces you to really take in what you’re viewing.”
The museum looks forward to participating in Slow Art Day 2020.
