The aim of the Slow Art movement is to break with the often frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Slow Art at the Modern invests in this pause with a 30-minute spotlight tour focusing on one work of art. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern begins at 5:30 pm.

Third Fridays, 5:30 pm

The ’Burbs (Joe Dante, 1989) Starring Tom Hanks as everyman Ray Peterson, The ’Burbs tells the story of a neighborhood whose fences are just not tall enough. After a suspiciously creepy family moves in down the block, the neighbors can’t help but speculate wildly about the newcomers’ intent, which escalates into total suburbanite anarchy. Produced by another of Corman’s proteges, Ron Howard, and costarring Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, and a young Corey Feldman, The ’Burbs is a gothic comedy about the all-American suburban way of life.
