Event Description

Join a movement!

Slow Art Day is an international event encouraging people of all ages to visit community art spaces—virtually or in person—and to look at art slowly.

This year, Slow Art Day is virtual!

Participate in Slow Art Day 2021 to:

  • Distract yourself.
  • Feed your soul.
  • Spark your creativity.
  • Discover and connect with new artworks.
  • Name five women artists.
  • Learn about yourself, loved ones, and fellow participants.
  • Connect with other participants from around the world!

How it Works:

Slow Art Day invites you to invest time looking closely at a limited number of artworks. NMWA will help with this process by providing a small selection of art to consider along with slow looking prompts to help you get started. You are encouraged to examine at least five works of art from the options provided for 10 minutes each. You can do this alone, or with loved ones, in the comfort of your home.

Check out the 2021 Slow Art Day selected artworks and slow looking instructions (PDF).

Then join a virtual gathering Saturday, April 10, 2021, 1 p.m. (ET), to connect with other art lovers, discuss the experience of slow looking, and learn more about the selected artworks. A NMWA educator will facilitate this virtual conversation through Zoom.
