Slow Time with Historic Murals

In Norwalk, Connecticut, participants in Slow Art Day will examine WPA murals in the city’s Maritime Aquarium. After close, leisurely looking at works by Alexander J. Rummler, docents from the Arts Commission will lead discussions of each.

Norwalk has the nation’s largest collection of WPA murals, which have been restored and are on display at the aquarium and four other sites in the city.

A report on host Susan Wallerstein’s event is here.

A Slow Art Stroll at UMD

art walk umdOnce a year students at the University of Maryland take an ArtWalk, an event they created to showcase visual arts programming on campus. This year, the walk coincides with Slow Art Day — resulting in an all-day celebration with eight participating spaces.

At their first stop ArtWalkers will pick up “passports,” which they will present at each site for a Slow Art Day stamp.
