Virtual Slow Art Day
Saturday, April 4
2:00 – 3:00 PM
Join us virtually, via Zoom, this Saturday to celebrate #SlowArtDay. Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission to help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art. Observing a work slowly allows for discoveries and new perspectives. Art can be an oasis, a place to find relaxation and calm. It can help you make meaning out of the madness. We all benefit from art and access to art, even and perhaps especially in times of public crisis.

The goal of Slow Art Day is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. For this year's event, join two of the KMA's docents for an in-depth conversation about a selection of works in the Bisa Butler: Portraits exhibition. Before the discussion, find a quiet space. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let it out slowly. Now open your eyes, and engage with the works, spending about 15 minutes slowly looking at each one. What thoughts come to mind?
 
More details regarding Slow Art Day will be posted on the Museum's Facebook and Instagram feeds on Saturday morning, including the selected images and the questions to be discussed when observing each work.
