Why: Soooooo right on.
From their site:
Did you know the average person pauses less than 8 seconds to take in a work of art? Break the cycle of speeding through museums with Slow Art. Reflect at length upon an artwork of your choice in the galleries then gather in Luce Foundation Center at 1:15 p.m. for a lunchtime discussion with other participants. Purchase lunch from the Courtyard Cafe or bring your own.
