Slow Art Day

Saturday, April 14, 2018 12-3 PM

Slow Art Day is a global event Saturday, April 14, 2018 with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
Slow Art Day Basics
1. Attend and look at 6 pieces of art slowly.
Show up on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at The Butler in Youngstown (no admission to pay) and then look slowly at the designated pieces of art that the Butler staff/volunteers suggest, then look SLOWLY – five to ten minutes – at each piece of pre-assigned art.
Some venues pick five pieces of art, others may concentrate on one or two, while others will give yet more options.
2. Discuss your experience
In some cases, you can meet up with your host and the other participants at a pre-assigned spot.
Whatever the design is – what all the events share is the focus on slow looking and its transformative power.
