Slow Art Day

“...to 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. 

WHY:

  • To break out of your typical “go, go, go” routine.
  • To learn about yourself, fellow participants, and the creative expressions of women artists.
  • To make discoveries about and forge connections with artwork.

HOW IT WORKS:

Participants will examine at least five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet to talk about their experience. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. Don’t worry, museum staff will be present to provide you with artwork suggestions and questions to consider.

SCHEDULE:

  • 12–12:15 p.m..: Check in
  • 12:15–1:15 p.m.: Look at five artworks for 10 minutes each
