Slow Art Day is the global all-volunteer event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
Each year, our Junior Docent Corps hosts SLOW ART DAY at the OJAC.
When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries. The typical museum-goer spends only a few seconds glancing at a work of art--not enough time to really engage (discover details, consider context, make personal connections) with each object.
How Does It work?
One day each year in April- people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly.
At the OJAC, visitors will be presented with a Gallery Guide of questions and activities created by the Junior Docent Corps, and will find these students stationed at different works of art though out the galleries.
Junior Docents will engage visitors in thoughtful conversations and fun activities they have planned and researched. Visitors are encouraged to Slow Down, look, discuss and enjoy!
