NORWALK, Conn. -- The Norwalk Arts Commission, in partnership with the Maritime Aquarium, is joining forces with more than 100 organizations around the world to participate in Slow Art Day.
The event, initiated by a group of museums in 2009, is designed to encourage people to discover the joy of art.
The Norwalk version, now in its second year, will take place on Saturday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the aquarium.
The featured attraction will be an exploration of two Alexander Rummler murals, “Day's End” and “Shucking Oysters," along with a small sketch the artist did to secure final approval for one of his paintings.
Guides will also share several recently discovered historic photographs from the 1930s used by Rummler in his work.
Conversation about the art will continue over a light lunch at the aquarium.
The event is free, but space is limited and advance registration is required.
