Slow Art Day at Gallery 2014

Slow Art Day at Gallery 2014Saturday, April 27, 12:30pm-3:30pm – Gallery 2014, 2014 Harrison St., Hollywood

Gallery 2014, an exciting, new nonprofit concept established to bring the community together to celebrate, enjoy, learn and acquire exceptional artwork of emerging artists from around the globe, is a host venue for the worldwide April 27 Slow Art Day. The all-volunteer event has a simple mission: to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.  At Gallery 2014, participants will look at five works of pre-assigned art at Gallery 2014 for 10 minutes each, and then meet together over lunch to discuss their experience at the nearby Cinquecento Pizza Gelato & Café. To sign up and for more information, visit  Slow Art Day began after founder Phil Terry spent 30 minutes looking at Hans Hoffmann’s 1943 painting Fantasia at the Jewish Museum’s 2008 exhibition Action/Abstraction. The experience sparked an idea to help those outside the art world better appreciate museums’ offerings.  Also on the same day, April 27, Gallery 2014 will be holding their free open house from 6-9 pm. Visit for more information. Participation in Slow Art Day is free. Attendees will pay for their lunch at Cinquecento Pizza Gelato & Café.
