One day each Spring people all over the world visit museums and galleries to look at art slowly.

The structure of Slow Art Day is simple: visit a museum, choose a work of art, and spend five to ten minutes engaging with it. Discuss your experience with friends or join the online conversation using #SlowArtDay. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the practice of seeing.
