Overview

On average, a gallery visitor looks at a work of art for just 15 seconds. Slow Art Day, held at galleries and museums around the world, invites participants to slow down and focus on the art of seeing.

Slow Art Day has a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at, and loving, art and objects.

Come to the Museum and get up close to a selection of items from our collection. You'll be captivated by colour and tantalised by texture and form. Meet with a curator, grab a cup of tea or coffee and talk about what you have discovered by looking slowly. Of course, you’re free to stray from the library and select your own objects to ponder too!
