The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia will participate in Slow Art Day on Saturday, April 27, with Artful Conversation. Slow Art Day is a global event that celebrates art and encourages people to uncover their own love for it. Artful Conversation, held at 2:00 p.m., will focus on Thornton Dial's large painting "Spirit of Grand Central Station: The Man That Helped the Handicapped."
Artful Conversation promotes an audience-driven dialogue about one work of art. Rather than prompted by a lecture, the discussion relies on the audience's insights into the work. Carissa DiCindio, the Georgia Museum of Art's curator of education, who runs Artful Conversation, said, "Each Artful Conversation is different because it all comes from the audience and their own personal experiences, what they think about and bring up when they take a closer look at a painting."
Artful Conversation encourages viewers to spend more time with a work of art, to make connections with it and to find new ways of seeing it. There are 223 Slow Art Day venues around the world.
2:00 p.m. No admission charge
