Virtual Slow Art Day

“ see takes time, like to have a friend takes time”—Georgia O’Keeffe

Join a movement! Slow Art Day is an international event encouraging people of all ages to visit museums and to look at art slowly.

This year, Slow Art Day is virtual! 


  • To distract yourself.
  • To feed your soul. 
  • To spark your creativity. 
  • To discover and connect with new artworks. 
  • To name five women artists. 
  • To learn about yourself, loved ones, and fellow participants. 


Examine at least five works of art for 10 minutes each over the course of the next week. You can do this alone or with loved ones. See the instructions document for a link to selected images and prompts that will help you get started.
