This colorful collage/print features cut-out photographs of three pickup trucks covered in vibrant, geometric-patterned, Native American blankets atop a blue, pink, and red geometric background. A few men and women populate the vehicles, some sitting on the back bumper, others on the roof. Above and below this segment are alternating layers of green, red, and orange stripes, and red stars on a muted yellow background.
Look slowly at selected artworks during the week and then join a virtual conversation with a NMWA educator and other art lovers to discuss the experience.

Event Description

Join a movement!

Slow Art Week, March 25 through April 2, 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 Week is virtual!

Participate in Slow Art Week 2022 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 Week 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 2022 Slow Art Week selected artworks and slow looking instructions (PDF).

Then join a virtual gathering Saturday, April 2, 2022, at 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.
