Slow Art Day is for all ages. Here, a docent, or guide, leads a discussion with the children on what the colors symbolize in Marrion Reid’s “The Sorceress”.

Pickard Hall hosts the second annual Slow Art Day today from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Kathryn Lucas, one of the docents or guides, said, “This event is a retreat from the hectic world.”

Rebecca Cuscaden believes that Slow Art Day allows art appreciators to ask themselves, “What does this mean to you?”

Slow Art Day is open to the public, and admission is free. Art appreciators can explore Columbia’s “hidden gems”, as Gary Tatlow puts it. In addition, Lucas and fellow docent Rebecca Cuscaden said, “Slow Art Day allows people to formulate their own ideas on the artwork and examine it in closer detail.”
