Norwalk Arts Commission Hosts Slow-looking of WPA Murals

The Norwalk Arts Commission in Norwalk, CT, hosted its first Slow Art Day in their City Hall Galleries, which holds one of the largest and most important collections of restored Depression-era Works Project Administration (WPA) murals in the country.

Docent Melissa Slattery started the event by giving a talk about WPA artists, then guided participants to slowly enjoy several beach-themed murals by WPA artist Alexander Rummler. They followed with a discussion of their experience over brunch.
