Experience art, as you never have before.

Slow Art Day is an art appreciation movement with more than 119 venues participating around the world. Since it’s founding in 2009 the Slow Art movement has reached every continent, truly becoming a global event. Instead of the standard 8-second view. Slow Art Day participants are asked to spend an hour appreciating five different pieces of art.

“Slow Art Day has grown so quickly because it is a powerful and simple way to experience art,” says founder Phil Terry, CEO of the experience design firm Creative Good.

 

Five pieces from the 21st annual International Women’s Day Art Show: Renewal have been chosen for this event.  The artists will be in attendance.

The featured works and artists are:

Snake and Butterfly by Kelli Dove

Secrets of the Cosmos by Helen Will

Swan by Robyn Rennie,

Barcode by Faten Al Hariri (represented by Abeer Al Hariri and Kathryn Kaiser)

Cancer: A Caregiver’s Journey by Heather Smeding

 

The OMAH’s Slow Art Day will begin at 1pm on April 8th, 2017. Following the viewing, participants will meet over refreshments to discuss the art and their experiences with each other and the artists whose work was on display.
