Join Sarah Reincke, master docent, for an interactive conversation about three artworks in our Collection and special exhibitions Fantastical Forms and Meeting the Moon. Before the discussion, find a quiet space. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let it out slowly. Now open your eyes, and engage with the artworks in the image gallery; click on the thumbnail for a larger image, and spend about 15 minutes looking slowly at each.

  • What’s going on in this artwork? What do you see that makes you say that?
  • What’s the first work that comes to mind when you view this artwork? Why?
  • These artworks are made of ceramic. If you could touch them, how might their textures be alike? Different?
  • If you could ask each artist one question, what would it be?

Slow Art Fridays

Each Friday at 12pm, docents lead virtual, in-depth conversations about a few artworks in our Collection or special exhibitions. The goal is simple: slow down, discover the joy of looking at art, and talk about the experience with others. Topics, artworks, and self-guided questions are posted on the Museum's website in advance for participants, or for those wishing to have a self-guided experience on their own.

Generous support for this program is provided by Art Bridges.
