Boston organizer: Payal Kripalani
Hosted by Reading Odyssey

From Slow Art, eventbrite:

Fee: You pay the museum admission yourself day of the event and also pay for your own lunch.
This live event is designed to help participants see art in a new way - to exercise their seeing, thinking and listening muscles.
We ask participants in slow art to look at pieces of art for between 10 minutes and 60 minutes each (viewer's choice). Note: the average museum visitors looks at a piece of art for no more than 8 seconds (many for less!).

Stay tuned for artwork suggestions e-mailed to your inbox.
Hosted by the nonprofit Reading Odyssey, slow art is the art world's equivalent of "slow food."
How does it work?
1. You register at the link above (so we can send you further instructions and confirm the size of our lunch)
2. You arrive at 10:30 on October 17, pay your admission and then go look at two or more art pieces for 10+ minutes each. Note: we'll send you some suggestions ahead of time for pieces to look at - and recommend that first-time attendees spend 10-15 minutes with each work of art.
3. That's it - you arrive, pay your museum admission price, look at art slowly and then join us for lunch.
4. Oh, and come dressed distinctively.
5. Spread the word.
