deCordova is proud to participate in Slow Art Day 2017.  We will be offering a facilitated experience of close looking at selected artworks, followed by a conversation about the pieces.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Henry David Thoreau

Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.

Why slow?

When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries.

The most important discovery they make is that they can see and experience art without an expert (or expertise).

And that’s an exciting discovery. It unlocks passion and creativity and helps to create more art lovers.
