Slow Art Day 2021
You’ve heard of slow food, how about slow art? Join us for an intimate virtual gathering to view and discuss two artworks from the museum collection.
The slow food movement has inspired many offshoots, and why not slow art? Join museum docent Mary Powell Grossman and Director of Education and Interpretation Deborah Clearwaters for an intimate virtual gathering to view and discuss two artworks from the collection. Each new shared observation will enrich our understanding of these works, which will be visible onscreen in high resolution. You will be asked to relax, slow your breathing, and look closely, asking yourself: What do I notice? What colors, composition, shapes, and materials do I see? What does the artwork remind me of or make me think about? Then, after sharing your reflections and listening to others’ comments, find out if you see the works in new ways.
Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.
