Event Details

@ San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

In collaboration with international grass-roots organization Slow Art Day, SFMOMA has a challenge for you: devote ten uninterrupted minutes to looking at a single work of art slowly. Join SFMOMA Open Space regulars Tess Thackara, Emily Wilson, and Duane Deterville for a round of slow looking on Saturday, April 27: look at and consider five works of art for ten minutes each, followed by conversation and refreshments. Note: please sign up for just one viewing time.

Slow Art viewing times: 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM, and 3:00 PM
Post-viewing snacks and conversation: Koret Visitor Education Center (2nd floor)
