Although there is no correct or incorrect way to engage with an exhibition, museum researchers have reported the average visitor spends just 15 to 30 seconds in front of a work of art. What would you see if you spent a minute (or ten) longer? Since 2008, museums around the world have been hosting a Slow Art Day every April 4th. Participants examine five works of art for 10 minutes each—an invite to experience the works, as opposed to simply seeing them.
