Smithsonian Magazine covers Slow Art

The Smithsonian Magazine

covered Slow Art today. Thanks, Smithsonian – you really got the idea. And thanks for the great tortoise photo. Here’s the beginning of the article:


I think most of us are familiar with the adage, “steady and slow wins the race.” So why is it that art museum visitors spend their time observing artwork as if they were at the supermarket? Given that they like what they’re looking at (why else would they blow all of eight seconds?) that really only allows enough time for the following train of thought: “Oh, that’s pretty… I rather like that… I wonder if they have this on a postcard at the gift shop… Crap, I don’t have any cash on me. Do they accept credit here?… Ooo! What’s that over there?”
