Zen priest Asai Ryōi, in his 1661 book, Ukiyo-monogatari (浮世物語, Tales of the Floating World), described a sensation of “. . . living only for the moment, savoring the moon, the snow, the cherry blossoms and the maple leaves, singing songs, diverting oneself in just letting oneself drift, buoyant and carefree, like a gourd floating along in a river current . . . .” REMNANTS OF THE FLOATING WORLD draws upon the treasures of the Gregg’s permanent collection to explore a world of courtesans in elegant kimonos, warrior-heroes on military ventures, sinister ghosts and witches, theatrical performances and scenes of leisure.

Slow Art Day is a worldwide celebration of art that encourages people to look at art SLOWLY – and thereby experience art in a new way. You can see more about Slow Art Day and the mission behind it on our website: http://SlowArtDay.com.
