For one day a year, people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. The phenomenon is known as Slow Art Day, a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art.

Travel across time and cultures in the Art of Americas wing at the MFA for this Slow Art Day! Meet at the Sharf Information Center and then we’ll visit the galleries and spend 10 minutes looking at each object. Afterward, gather at the Taste Cafe and Wine Bar for refreshments and an engaging conversation about what we saw.

The five objects we will be looking at are:
Maya Cylinder Vase
Mok a Sushi Bowl by Diego Romero
Saul Reproved by Samuel by John Singleton Copley
The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit by John Singer Sargent
Room No. V by Eldzier Cortor
