We like to think that visitors feel every day is slow art day at the Phillips. Taking time to look was a driving factor behind Duncan Phillips’s design of his galleries’ ambiance. This Saturday is Slow Art Day around the world with the goal of forming a connection between viewers and art, bringing art lovers together, and creating opportunities for inspiration and creativity. On Saturday make your museum visits, wherever you may be, a bit more leisurely, more thoughtful. If you’re with friends, talk about how this effort to slow down and look changed your experience of what you saw. Read here about participants in last year’s Slow Art Day who describe their participation in the event at our museum.
