Stick It To the TOM on Slow Art Day!

 

That which is not worth contemplating in life, is not worth recreating in art.  Ayn Rand, author

On April 12th the TOM invites you to participate in the second annual “Slow Art Day”.  This year, there are over 180 venues worldwide who will be participating – from Adelaide, Australia to Yountville, California.  Given the high speed pace of daily life, Slow Art Day offers the opportunity to slow down, reflect and interact with artworks and museum collections.

On April 12thStick it to the TOM on Slow Art Dayvisitors will be provided with post it notes and pencils and well be asking you to write down your responses to the works on view and let us know what you think of them. Following the model set up in the Convergence and Look What We Have! exhibitions, these responses will be posted on the walls next to the artworks so that other people can read and discover what moved/inspired/challenged/provoked someone else in their interaction with the art.  

We will also be offering a virtual platform for those who cannot physically visit the TOM on April 12th. On that day we will be posting images from our collection and inviting people to Stick it to the TOM on Slow Art Dayby posting their responses to the images on our Facebook page.  We’ll be tweeting some of the post it note responses on our Twitter page with the hashtags #StickItToTheTOM and #SlowArtDay if you want to follow the dialogue there as well.

So on April 12, come down to the Gallery or visit us online and tell us what you think!

Join us fo the TOM’s Annual General Meeting and Volunteer Appreciation a 2-4pm for refreshments and to further discuss pieces from our exhibitions.

Admission to the TOM is by donation.

There’s always something going on at the TOM!
