Slow Art Day at WMA
Experience the phenomenon that is Slow Art Day at WMA! Slow Art Day is an international event hosted by over 100 museums and arts organizations with the mission of helping people discover the joy of looking at, making meaning of, and loving art. The premise of Slow Art Day is simple: attendees show up to a participating venue and are instructed to look at works of art slowly (at least 5 to 10 minutes long). After that, participants will gather at the venue and have a moderated discussion about what they saw, what they didn’t see, what it means to them, and what discoveries they made from looking slowly.
WMA will host our own Slow Art Day event on Saturday, April 21st from 10 – 11:30 a.m. Participants at WMA’s event will be treated to an exciting experience as they slowly look and make meaning of an incomplete exhibition installation in our Main Gallery. Guests will have 30 – 45 minutes of slow-looking and will be encouraged to join the following discussion in the galleries. Come make your own meaning at Slow Art Day at WMA!
