About the Event

The Barnes is pleased to participate in Slow Art Day 2019, 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.

What's On

11am – noon Slow Looking in the Galleries

When you arrive at the Barnes, you will receive a list of five paintings for your self-guided slow-looking experience. Spend an hour or so in the galleries looking carefully at these works, then join us in the Comcast Auditorium for a 30-minute discussion about your experience.

Noon – 12:30pm Discussion in Comcast Auditorium

William Perthes, Bernard C. Watson Director of Adult Education, will lead a discussion about the slow-looking experience.
