Six cultural organizations in Broward County participated in the recent worldwide “Slow Art Day” event that attracted hundreds of local art enthusiasts to participating galleries to view and then discuss the art they had seen.
Galleries and cultural organizations participating in the Broward event were ArtServe, Fort Lauderdale; North Regional/Broward College Library, Coconut Creek; Museum of Art I Fort Lauderdale; Gallery 2014, Hollywood; F.A.T. (Flagler Arts Technology) Village Art Walk, Fort Lauderdale; and Dania Beach Paul DeMaio Branch Library, Dania Beach.
“This was a terrific day to showcase select works of art from the galleries and allow time for attendees to discuss what they viewed to get a variety of thoughts on any one piece of art,” said Jody Horne-Leshinsky of the Broward Cultural Division.
“Slow Art Day” is a global all-volunteer event with a simple mission: to help more people discover the joy of looking at art. The goal of the day is to allow arts enthusiasts to focus on the art and the art of seeing.
Broward County was one of three Florida-based public art programs that hosted Slow Art Day, including Orange County and St. Lucie County. To learn more about Broward County’s Public Art and Design Program, visit broward.org/Arts.
