Slow Art Day is a worldwide celebration of art that encourages people to look at art SLOWLY – and thereby experience art in a new way. You can see more about Slow Art Day and the mission behind it on our website: http://SlowArtDay.com.
Last year, the Hofstra University Museum (HUM) hosted its first Slow Art Day and was delighted to share works from the exhibition We Hold These Truths ... with participants who then discussed what they viewed over lunch.
This year, works from the exhibition David Jacobs: Sight and Sound will be slowly viewed. This exhibition will highlight a survey of work from the career of the contemporary artist David Jacobs. Featured are his famous Wah Wah sound sculptures. His large-scale sculptures use principals of physics and engineering to create sound using air.
We hope you will join us this year as we slowly take in and view works from this exciting exhibition.
As Slow Art Day approaches, you’ll hear from the HUM with more information, as well as instructions about what to do when you arrive for Slow Art Day.
