Slow Art Day and the All Stars Project

In November, Slow Art Day founder Phil Terry partnered with the All Stars Project to bring a group of youth and community members to El Museo del Barrio in New York for a day of slow looking and discussion.

Phil writes, “Museums and art are for everyone – not just the few. Slow Art Day and the All Stars Project, Inc. are working together to help more people learn how to look at and love art – how to walk into a museum and not feel intimidated, to approach art as if we are all included because we are.”

The Frick’s new exhibition “Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis” features an enlivened version of Ambrosius Bosschaert’s Vase with Flowers in a Window.

Artists Rob and Nick Carter created the work by creating a time lapse-like video loop version of the work; complete with changing light, weather fluctuations, and life-like snail exploring the space.

If only more works actively called on the viewer to look slowly and repeatedly!
