Slow Art Tour

The Power Plant

Slow Art Day at The Power Plant in April 2018.

Pivoting off of the global event Slow Art Day, this program seeks to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art by encouraging visitors to look at art slowly, and then meet to talk about their experiences. While we share personal associations with the art, we can also make interpersonal connections with other participants.

From 6:30 to 7 PM, we will look in silence at three artworks for 10 minutes each. Grab both a lightweight stool to sit comfortably as you look, and a handout with suggestions of what to look for and questions to ponder. From 7 to 7:30 PM, we will facilitate a group discussion about your observations and insights. In the end, participants should feel empowered to see and experience art without an expert (or expertise).
