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.

The Modern is excited to offer this special camp to preschoolers. Camp begins with an orientation on the first day, including a tour of the collection, museum facilities, and grounds. The rest of the week focuses on gallery projects with an artist who leads campers to respond to works on view. This camp prepares young children for future camps at the Modern.
