This year the PMA will once again be a hosting venue for Slow Art Day, in which people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art that we have chosen, and then meet in the PMA Café to discuss them. Come by yourself or with a group, focus on the art, and savor the joy of looking.
