Slow Art Day
April 2, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm$8
Join thousands of museum-goers for the 13th annual International Slow Art Day, a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. As the Washington Post described, “In a society forever speeding up, slowing down has become a luxury and a challenge; a virtue and an act of rebellion.”
At the Harwood, we invite you to choose five works of art and spend at least 10 minutes with each object. Prompts, sketching materials, and stools will be available at the admissions desk. This event is included with admission. If you need a place to start, we suggest adding these works of art to your Slow Art Day itinerary:
Debbie Long, Mavis, 2022
Gus Foster, Pecos Big Horns, Pecos Wilderness, 1989
Agnes Martin Gallery
Ken Price, Death Shrine 1, 1972-1976
José María Apodaca, Nicho with Frame and Watercolor, c.1910
Barbara Latham, Decoration Day, c.1940
Juan Tafiho Mirabel, Untitled, 1930
Additionally, pop-up workshops will be offered in the afternoon exploring different ways of slowing down from sketching to looking and even moving your body. Registration is recommended.
