Our facebook page has gotten quite snug recently… by being jam-packed with a great selection of visually arresting art!
This week our facebook submitted artists were inspired by miniature craft. When your artwork is the scale of a cigar box the extra attention to detail provided by slow looking is a necessary pursuit!
See more works, large and small here.
Keep your nose to the ground and you might miss out on this delightful public art installation by Kurt Perschke! The RedBall Project travels to different urban locations with the purpose of encouraging the public to interact and re-imagine their cities.
Waiting with anticipation for the RedBall Project to come to your hometown? Practice your slow looking skills by taking in the already marvelous sights gone unseen around you.
Don’t forget to supplement your new discoveries with our double-take worthy featured artworks on our facebook page!
Ute Lennartz-Lembeck and her German “knitting graffiti” group B-Arbeiten adorn trees with custom-fit sweaters to encourage passers-bys to reconsider their everyday surroundings. This piece, Weeping Willow, was created in 2011 in Velbert, Germany.

As the very first intern to join the Slow Art Day team back in August of 2012, I’ve seen the social media strategy for our organization evolve from the ground up. From completely revamping our Tumblr page, to becoming active again on Facebook and Twitter, we’ve grown our online presence exponentially in just over a year, thanks to our hard-working social media team of just under 10 interns and volunteers.
One our strongest beliefs at Slow Art Day is that art is truly for everyone, and our social media channels reflect that. Our Facebook page provides a daily dose of interesting artwork into your newsfeed, while our Tumblr blog showcases not only art by well-established names, but also features young and emerging artists who submit their work for our weekly “Tumblr Thursdays.”
We’re planning some exciting contests and giveaways in the future, so make sure to stay up to date on all our social media channels, whether we’re welcoming and announcing new venues on Twitter, sharing host reports and interviews on our blog, or posting thought-provoking and inspiring pieces of art on our Facebook and Tumblr.
If you like what you see, feel free to drop us a line – we always love feedback!

We’re excited to announce that Slow Art Day has reached a new milestone: over 200 venues have registered to host Slow Art Day 2013! As of this week, there are over 200 participating venues in 22 countries, 160 cities, and 5 continents. What started out as a grassroots movement has grown into a truly global initiative, and we want to take a moment to thank all of our dedicated volunteers, hosts, and participants for their help and support of Slow Art Day.
To help celebrate this accomplishment, we’ve planned some fun posts across our social media channels emphasizing the theme of growth. On our Tumblr, our weekly “Themed Thursday” series is focusing on growth with artworks like Gregory Euclide‘s Otherworldly: optical delusions and small realities, 2011.
Slow Art Day 2013 is just over a month away; how many venues do you think will register to host by April 27th? Let us know in the comments! There’s still plenty of time to sign up to host; click on the Be A Host tab at the top of the page to register.
Once again, thank you to everyone who has played a roll, small or large, in helping make Slow Art Day such a success!
