The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art focused on key pieces in the exhibit, The Rest of History, which explores groups (minorities, women, etc.) that have been underrepresented in history. Slow Art Day also coincided with Military Family Appreciation Day at VirginiaMOCA so a number of families came and did slow looking together.
Slow Art Day 2019 this year was celebrated in hundreds of museums and galleries from The Rubin Museum in NYC, to the Tate Modern in London, to a small museum in the rural Basque countryside, the Ur Mara Museoa.
Elena Cajaraville sent us this lovely 60 second video, which shows the Ur Mara’s slow and long day filled with art, food, music, and dance.
I guarantee it will put you in a good mood and show you some of the magic of this global/local Slow Art Day phenomenon.
