Slow Art Day
Some estimates say that people spend only 8 seconds looking at a given artwork in a museum. Founder of Slow Art, Phil Terry, started this project in the summer of 2009 to encourage people to spend about 10 minutes looking at fewer artworks. Slow down and enjoy the artworks of the annual juried theme exhibition. Visit MMoA galleries between 11 and 1 and pick up our Slow Art Guide – MMoA staff has recommended five pieces for your focus. Then join others for lunch at nearby Bartleby’s at 1 pm to talk about your experience. Lunch is at your own expense and admission to MMoA is, as always, free.
