The idea of “slow art” has its origins in the “slow food” movement centered on the enjoyment and appreciation of food that began in Italy in the late 1980s. The aim of the slow art movement is to break from the frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern features a 30-minute tour beginning at 5:30 pm that focuses on one work of art.
Please join fellow educators and administrators for an evening that highlights and celebrates the importance and benefits of arts education in our schools.

Lowell Liebermann is one of America’s most frequently performed and recorded composers—a favorite among orchestras and distinguished artists worldwide. His compositions have been recorded and released by over 40 labels, and his Piano Concerto No. 2, performed by Stephen Hough and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, was nominated for a Grammy.
This program for families with young children is led by a docent and includes a gallery project designed by the Modern’s education department. Both the tour and project focus on selected works on view in the galleries. Registration is not required, but attendance is limited. A sign-up sheet is provided at the information desk the day of the program. Admission and supplies are free.
