International Slow Art Day is coming up on April 27th. It's a worldwide effort to have a different kind of art experience. The idea is to spend a couple of hours immersing yourself in just 5-10 works of art, and then meet up with individuals who have just done the same to talk about the experience. We're hosting Slow Art Day where I work, and Metafilter's own Lipstick Thespian is host. We thought it would be fun to invite MeFites to take part, and when it's all over, we can go out for a just-MeFite gathering over pints or such. [more inside]

Draw models depicting The Whore Of Babylon, Gas-Strapped Road Warriors, or inevitable zombie hordes. Mingle, drink, draw, eat and boggie down the Apocalypso in a sumptuous Brooklyn art space. It's the end of the year as we know it and it's about damn time. [more inside]
