Slow Art Day

08 April 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Organized by: deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
Venue: deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
51 Sandy Pond Road

On Slow Art Day, visitors at museums around the world are urged to slow down and engage deeply with the art they experience first-hand. Join deCordova for this world-wide event! Slow Art Day’s mission is very simple: to help people discover the joy of looking at and appreciating art slowly.


It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. - Henry David Thoreau

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.
