The Museum is open with updated hours, Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm and required free timed tickets for the Museum collection galleries to encourage social distancing. Learn more about these and other safety updates at ncartmuseum.org/covid19. Entry to special exhibition Golden Mummies of Egypt requires a paid ticket, which also provides access to the free Museum collection galleries. Free timed tickets to the Museum galleries do not provide access to Golden Mummies of Egypt.
Slow art is a growing movement to mindfully observe and appreciate art. This live virtual program guides you through centering techniques and a breathing practice followed by an intentional observation of City in the Grass by Leonardo Drew.
Sharing and discussion are encouraged! This is a great practice to calm the mind and experience art in a deeper way. For ages 16 and up.
• You are welcome to participate as much or as little you like. Though discussion and social interaction are main intentions of this program, it is fine if you prefer to have your mic and video turned off throughout. Please also be considerate of your fellow participants.
• Choose a quiet space with minimal distractions. Feel free to create as comfortable and calming of an area as you like: Sit in a supportive chair, dim the lights, or light a candle.
While you can use a smartphone to join, for an optimal experience we recommend using a desktop, laptop, or tablet so that you can see slides and meeting tools on a larger screen.
• Log on a few minutes early to get familiar with the view options, chat box, and other functions.
• We’ll call on and identify participants by whatever name appears on their Zoom account.
• Use headphones and microphone for best sound quality, and silence alerts from nearby devices.
While the Museum is now open, Museum from Home programming continues, including the new NCMA Virtual Exhibitions Subscription and ongoing virtual events. Through the NCMA Recommends virtual offerings below, inspired by the Museum collection, we hope to foster contemplation, meditation, and creativity.
