We feature fine art and breakfast.
Art for breakfast, so to say.
We wanted to do something about the fact that we (and people around us) felt we lacked time, and knowledge of the art market, to take part in what the cultural scene in Stockholm has to offer. Why limit fine arts consumption to evenings and weekends? People already do all sorts of things in the mornings. So in the early spring of 2014, we decided to found an organization that arranges monthly morning sessions featuring all kinds of fine arts. Over breakfast.
The concept is quite straight forward: Free breakfast events featuring art.
Anyone can sign up to join us for a visit to a museum; a poetry reading, a small concert; an art gallery; a film screening - or anything else that we're featuring. We usually start at 8 am, and the session lasts for around half an hour. Breakfast is served and we're finished in time for you to get going to school/work.
The thought behind Early Art is to make it easier and more accessible for people to enjoy art. Early Art is for everyone. We want to provide people with opportunities to learn something new, a source for inspiration orsomething that challenges our minds. We want to lower the barriers for people to take part of what the broad and varied art scene Stockholm (and other large cities) has to offer, by offering up an open-minded room where anyone can enjoy art.
