Slow Art Day

comment
Slow Art Day is a worldwide event based on a simple idea: Go to a museum, and look at some art. Slowly. The organizers of Slow Art Day recommend spending a minimum of five minutes observing each piece on display. This should be an easy task at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts (3716 Washington Boulevard; 314-754-1850 or www.pulitzerarts.org). Its current exhibition, In The Still Epiphany, contains forty selections from the unbelievable private collection of Emily and Joseph Pulitzer Jr., each one selected by installation artist Gedi Sibony, who staged the works throughout the gallery for maximum impact. Even those whose art staring experience is limited to Magic Eye posters should have no problem devoting undivided attention to Epiphany. Take your time -- how often are you granted the opportunity to view works by the likes of Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Pierre Bonnard and John Singer Sargent in the flesh?
