About the Event
The Barnes is pleased to participate in Slow Art Day 2020, a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art. Our approach to art education is grounded in careful, prolonged observation and critical thinking, a mission that aligns with Slow Art Day’s focus on the art of seeing.
