Saturday, April 17 is the 2nd annual International Slow Art Day. Part of the global grassroots Slow Movement, Slow Art Day encourages visual awareness and critical thinking through the close observation of art. Needless to say, any event that encourages visual attention and critical thinking is right up Glimpse‘s alley.

Glimpse staff will be slowing down and seeing at the acclaimed Peabody Essex Museum (PEM), in Salem, Massachusetts (USA) — one of 47 participating art institutions worldwide. Participants will view select pieces exploring themes of power, at a leisurely pace and then discuss the experience with other participants over lunch in the atrium café. Join us!
