Join us for the Denver Art Museum's inaugural Slow Art Day, an annual global event with a simple mission: to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
We invite you to slow down, spend time with, and look closely at works of art in this informal gallery program. At the beginning of the event, participants will receive a handout with tips for looking, savoring, and resetting the pace before heading to the galleries for a self-guided slow looking experience. We will meet up at the end of the program to share our thoughts, observations, and discoveries in a facilitated discussion.
We hope to slow down with you on April 14!
11:00-11:15 am: Meet in the lower level of the Hamilton Building to get the scoop on Slow Art Day and to pick up a few slow looking tips and itinerary suggestions from museum staff.
11:15 am-12:30 pm: Explore the galleries on your own, looking at five art works for ten minutes each.
12:30-1:00 pm: Reconvene in the lower level to share and discuss the experience.
