Here are some basic options for how Slow Art Day works around the globe.

Sign up at a local museum or art gallery

Click on the list of 2017 venues, find one near you and register online (it’s free).

Attend and look at 5 pieces of art slowly

Show up on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at your venue, pay the admission fee (if there is one) and then look slowly – 5-10 minutes – at each piece of pre-assigned art.

Some museums pick 5 pieces of art, others may concentrate on 1 or 2 – while yet others will give more options.

Have lunch to discuss your experience

In some cases, you can meet up with your host and the other participants at a pre-assigned lunch spot.

In other cases, museums will facilitate discussions in front of each piece of art.

Whatever the design is – what all the events share is the focus on slow looking and its transformative power.
