Traditional and unexpected ways to go deeper with a work of art will be presented through the lens of each students preferred art discipline.

Contemporary art may move quickly, but there are great benefits to slowing down to interpret it. This adult educational program invites participants to intentionally reduce their “speed reading” and take time to “deep dive” into a single work on view. Each session, a museum educator will select a different work of art and set a timer for sixty minutes of focused looking, conversation, consideration, interpretation, and understanding. Flex your art endurance and find out how rewarding extended time with an artwork can be.
