Slow Art Day 2016

4/9/2016

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 artworks will be highlighted in each session. Participants will meet in the lobby to receive a handout and then disperse to silently observe the selected pieces. Participants will reconvene in the lobby 40 minutes later (after spending 10 minutes with each work) and then embark on group discussion, facilitated by an Art Center docent, sharing observations and possible interpretations for the next 40 minutes.

*Reservations required for docent-led tours
Limit: 30

Morning Tour: 11 am

Make Reservations

Afternoon Tour: 1 pm

A self-guided option will also be available at the Information Desk and does not require a reservation.
