About

In support of NC State’s Wellness Day, Gregg Museum education staff offer a ‘slow-looking’ tour of current exhibitions. Studies have found that visitors to art galleries spend an average of eight seconds looking at each work on display. But what happens when we spend five minutes, fifteen minutes, an hour, or an afternoon really looking in detail at an artwork? This tour allows participants the opportunity to slow down, reflect, and form a more personal connection to the art they are experiencing.
