One day each year people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet to discuss their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. A self-guide at 11:00, a special slow tour at 12:00, and sketching materials can help you take a closer look at the Cincinnati Art Museum's World Class Collection. Slow lookers are also invited to the Slow Art Day discussion, held in the Rosenthal Education Center at 1:00 p.m. For even more close looking, register to attend the InDepth Gallery Talk on textile conservation at 2:00 p.m.
Here are four artworks we will be discussing at CAM’s #SlowArtDay. The fifth artwork is up to you!
• Felix Gozalez-Torres, Untitled
• Bernardino Mai, Alexander the Great and the Fates
• John Francis, Basket of Fruit
• Donald Judd, Untitled
