S L O W Art Day at the FAC

This Saturday, the FAC's participating in Slow Art Day, a worldwide celebration of art that encourages people to look at art — SLOWLY — and thereby experience it in a new way. Besides bolstering appreciation for art, it also helps build community. After viewing art, people are encourage to meet for lunch and further discuss and engage with their slow art-viewing experience.
