Slow Art Day at Butler Gallery    
Recent research at the Louvre Museum in Paris discovered that visitors looked at one of its most popular art-works, the Mona Lisa, for only 15 seconds on average. Often when we visit museums and galleries, we race around, trying to see as much as possible in the time available to us. Slow Art Day encourages people to slow down, pause and look closely at a smaller number of works.
