    Art Bite “Slow Looking”

    Beck Building

    “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see,” wrote Henry David Thoreau. What if, instead of trying to see so many works of art when we visit a Museum, we slowed down?

    After a day’s work, it’s time to sit back and relax! This tour features paintings that depict people relaxing, and even some actual chairs from the Museum’s collections.
