Did you know that the average museum visitor spends just 30 seconds looking at a work of art?
Today, The Ringling is joining museums all over the world to slow down and focus on the art of seeing. You are invited to s l o w l y explore works in the Ringling collection with friends, museum staff, volunteers, and other visitors.
From 11:00 am to 1:00 pm today, Ringling docents will be stationed at works in the Art Museum galleries to assist with slow looking and to facilitate conversations. Conversations will start fresh every half hour, so stop and stay awhile.
