“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” -Henry David Thoreau

Slow Art Day is a global event where people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. The mission is simple: Help more people discover the joy of viewing and loving art.

Join us on Saturday, April 9, 2016 for slow looking tours. Visitors will be encouraged to spend extended time looking closely at three favorite artworks from our permanent collection: Little Dancer of Fourteen Years by Edgar Degas, Keith by Chuck Close, and the mummy cases on view in the Egyptian galleries. Following the tour, participants are invited to gather for complimentary coffee, tea, and conversation about the overall experience.

No registration required. Tours will depart from Sculpture Hall at 1:30 pm and replace our regular daily tour.
