International Slow Art Day at CAM: In the digital age, we’re all about instant gratification: movies at the touch of a button, quick scrolls through Instagram, contorting our every thought into a 280-character tweet that will fade into nothingness as your followers’ timelines lengthen second by second. But when was the last time you really, really looked closely at something, like a piece of art? The Cincinnati Art Museum hosts an International Slow Art Day event, where you can participate in a guided tour that will force you to spend 15 minutes (each) on five different works and truly soak up the beauty of each one. You’ll even be led by some knowledgeable UC students on your journey. 3-4:30 p.m. Saturday. Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams. Free.
