Beach Museum invites visitors to slow down, enjoy the art on April 12

Monday, March 31, 2014

       

 

MANHATTAN — The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art is inviting everyone to slow down and enjoy a special day appreciating some special art.

The Kansas State University art museum is taking part in the sixth annual global Slow Art Day on Saturday, April 12.

From 10 a.m. to noon, museum visitors are asked to take their time while taking in the "Painting Borges: Art Interpreting Literature" exhibition. A list of the featured artworks in the exhibition can be picked up at the information desk. Bring along a sack lunch, so after the viewing you can join in the discussion of the experience with Kathrine Schlageck, the Beach Museum's senior educator. Coffee and dessert will be provided.

"The works featured in the Borges exhibition are thought-provoking — perfect for slow looking," Schlageck said.

Register for the event at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/manhattan-slow-art-day-beach-museum-of-art-april-12-2014-tickets-9512284499/.

Slow Art Day is an all-volunteer, self-organized, annual global event that aims to transform the art-viewing experience. Slow Art Day participants across the world are asked to spend an hour or more looking at just five pieces of art. After their individual slow viewing, participants meet together to talk about their experience.

More information about Slow Art Day is available at http://slowartday.com.
