On the 9th April 2016 The Hunt Museum will be hosting its very own Slow Art Day event


The mission of Slow Art Day is to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art, by taking the time to look closely at many different types of artwork.




Why slow?


When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries. The most important discovery they make is that they can see and experience art without an expert (or expertise).


It's very simple.


Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet together to talk about their experience.


What will I see?


For Slow Art Day 2016 The Hunt Museum will be displaying five pieces from the Irish Contemporary Ceramics Collection (ICCC). This collection is a joint project between the Ceramics programme, Limerick School of Art and Design (LIT) and The Hunt Museum, to establish an all-island collection of contemporary ceramics. It was established in 2015, and it is envisioned that this collection will grow annually to reflect the richness, diversity and creativity of contemporary Irish ceramic practice. 




This event will take place at 12pm in the Captain's Room. Please join us in the Hunt Museum Cafe afterwards to talk about the pieces with artist Mike Byrne, Ceramics staff   at LSAD.
