Slow Art Day helps more people learn how to look at and love art!
One day each year – April 14 in 2018 – people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at a small number of artworks for 5-10 minutes each and then meet together to talk about their experience.
Visit the Hermitage Museum to view artworks from our permanent collection and our new spring exhibition, PROOF, then meet up at 1pm for an informal discussion.

All visitors enjoy BOGO admission as part of VisitNorfolk's Stay & Play Weekend promotion April 14-15. No coupon or code needed.
Over 1,200 individual Slow Art Day events have taken place since its official launch in 2010. Slow Art Day events have taken place on all seven continents including Antarctica. 700 venues (museums, galleries, artist studios, sculpture parks, public art sites, etc.) have hosted events.
