The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas is participating again this year in Slow Art Day. The museum, opened in 2011, celebrates the American spirit in a setting that “unites the power of art with the beauty of nature.”
Consistent with their mission, they have designed a special combination event for this year’s Slow Art Day: Slow and Savory Tea.
Here’s how it works is:
- First visitors start with tea and treats
The goal is to put participants in a “calm, meditative mindset” before entering the galleries.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
- Then, special in-gallery activities
Once visitors are calm and ready to go, they then head in to the galleries ready to “slow down and savor” the art
This Slow Art Day event is free for Crystal Bridges members (although registration is required). Members can register here or by calling 479.418.5728.
