Saturday, April 8, 2017, 1 p.m.

Free with regular museum admission or membership

The Riverside Art Museum is proud to once again be a  host venue for Slow Art Day.

What is Slow Art Day?

One day each year – April 8 in 2017 – 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 together with our Museum Guide docents to talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing.

You have two "tracks" to choose from:

  • Visit Trabajamos/We Work and Papel Chicano Dos to look at five pre-designated art pieces. Spend five-to-ten minutes looking at each piece on your own (we suggest starting in Trabajamos/We Work). Meet back in the Art Alliance Gallery (Papel Chicano Dos) at 1:30 p.m. to talk with our Museum Guide about the use of color and its impact, as well as your experience and what YOU saw.
  • Visit Beyond Science Fiction to look at five pre-designated art pieces. Spend five-to-ten minutes looking at each piece on your own. At 1:30 p.m., our Museum Guide will facilitate a discussion on the difference between science fiction and surrealism, and their ability to transform worlds, as well as your experience and what YOU saw.

...so, How Long Do You Need to Look at a Work of Art to Get It? Join us and find out for yourself!
