Slow Art Day

Sat April 04, 2020 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

UPDATE: Since the Museum is temporarily closed, we’ve devised a way for you to engage in Slow Art Day from home. We’ll post a series of images on social media of a single artwork from a variety of angles and distances. Each photo will be accompanied by a series of prompts and questions to get you thinking more deeply and critically about the work.

We encourage you to spend 5-10 minutes with each image.

We’ve also compiled all four posts into a single document. Click here to download it.

What is Slow Art Day?

Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.

Why slow?

When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries. The most important discovery they make is that they can see and experience art without an expert (or expertise). And that’s an exciting discovery. It unlocks passion and creativity and helps to create more art lovers.

About the exhibition

Raw clay is emerging as a compelling medium for contemporary art, taking on new relevance as conversations around identity, visibility, and survival on our planet develop. From sticky and wet to dry and powdery, raw clay speaks to primal themes like the land, the body, and memory. Four new installations by leading artists working with unfired clay—Cassils, Magdolene Dykstra, Azza El Siddique, and Linda Swanson—invite you to discover new possibilities in an ancient medium. Learn more
