cARTie, Connecticut’s Non-Profit Mobile Art Museum, held events throughout what they called Slow Art Weekend 2022.
cARTie invited viewers at each of their stops to choose two works of art and spend at least 5 minutes with each. Their free event provided prompts, art materials, and all-important cushions.
The artwork featured was created by Connecticut high school students and an impressive selection follows:
The event was featured on cARTie’s Instagram page and advertised with the below flyer:
In addition to this Slow Art Weekend, cARTie provides year-round museum field trips to elementary schools that have limited access to the arts. *All* of their field trips include slow art time with rich, facilitated discussion.
We love this program and their mission to bring art to schools that otherwise don’t have it. We also are impressed by the design of their mobile Slow Art Weekend including their decision to feature some terrific student art.
We very much look forward to seeing what design they come up with for Slow Art Day 2023.

P.S. We’ve also asked them to provide an electronic copy of their brochure so we can share that with educators and curators around the world.
