    external resource from Artsy, How Long Do People Really Spend Looking at Art in Museums?

    Roughly 16 years ago, two researchers wrote about a paradox they observed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Lisa F. Smith and Jeffrey K. Smith—now both professors at the University of Otago—had been studying how visitors experience museums for years. They focused on the way museum-goers thought about their jaunts through white-walled institutions and extolled the cognitive pleasure that came with looking at art. The Smiths found that visitors professed to love museums, describing the experience as “incredible,” “breathtaking,” “outstanding,” and “a thrill of a lifetime.”

While important, none of these data points address the meaning of art museums to individuals and communities.

    If art dealer Michael Findlay had his way, smartphones would be banned from museum exhibitions. So would audio guides, wall labels and maybe even docents. “It all just gets in the way of what you’re seeing and depletes the experience of looking at art,” he says.
