Recovering from Slow Art Day 2014

April 13th, 2014

We had a great Slow Art Day 2014 in 238+ venues around the world.

The volunteer team that runs Slow Art Day is recovering and will soon be updating this site with the date for Slow Art Day 2015 (by the way, it’s Saturday, April 11, 2015).


The exhausted but happy team

Today is Slow Art Day 2014

April 12th, 2014

Have a *good* Slow Art Day 2014 wherever you are in the world.

If just one more person in the world today learns that they have the innate ability to look at and and to love art, then we will have all reached our mission.


Founder, Slow Art Day

Notes From Hosts: Mim Scalin

Greetings from Richmond, VA, USA

Slow Art Day 2014! I can’t wait.
I’ve got lots of people signed up (45), and have been keeping in touch with them on a regular basis. I hope they all show up!
It’s going to be an exciting event.
I’ve chosen 3 pieces from the 20th century galleries and 2 from an area under viewed for sure, sporting life, which is mainly British paintings ofhorse and dogs from the 1800s. 
Won’t people be surprised!
Instead of making buttons this year, I made labels on adhesive backed paper.

I look forward to seeing everyone’s photos from the event.
Best wishes to all,

“Slow down, it’s Slow Art Day at six city galleries (and more than 200 others around the world). The concept: Look at five artworks for 10 minutes each, then meet and discuss.”
