Slow Art Day 2017

4/8/2017

*Reservations required

One day each year, people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. The goal is to focus on art and the art of seeing. Four different artworks will be highlighted in each session.

Participants will meet in the lobby to receive a handout and then silent observation of the selected pieces will commence. Participants will convene back in the lobby 40 minutes later (the idea is to spend 10 minutes with each artwork) and then embark on group discussion, facilitated by an Art Center Docent, sharing observations and possible interpretations for the next 40 minutes.

Three Ways to Participate in Slow Art Day

  • 11 am: Docent-guided experience with optional lunch at Chef’s Palette. Participants are responsible for their own lunch cost.
