In celebration of our new exhibit, “Seaside: Two Works from the Collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts,” the Holland Museum invites you to our second annual Slow Art Day!
Slow Art Day is an annual global event that encourages museum visitors to discover the simple joy of looking at art. By spending 5-10 minutes looking at each painting during Slow Art Day, visitors begin seeing more details, drawing connections, and making informed decisions about what is happening in each artwork without the help of an “expert” tour guide.
In addition to the Holland Museum’s Dutch paintings, participants in Slow Art Day this year will have the opportunity to view two masterpeices on loan from the Detroit Institute of Arts, “On the Beach” by Edouard Manet and “Sisters on the Shore” by William Adolphe Bouguereau.
The format of Slow Art Day is simple: arrive at 11 a.m., spend time slowly looking at each selected painting, and then meet up with other Slow Art Day participants at noon to discuss the paintings together over lunch (Please bring your own sack lunch; the museum will provide beverages).
Slow Art Day is free with paid museum admission.
