How long does it take to know a work of art? Contemplation and making personal connections require time. In actual time, we sometimes need to move around or through an artwork or watch it over a period of time to experience it. Then there is work that references the passing of time, a time in history, or the evolution of art movements. Some pieces of art are so impactful, they can seem to suspend time or take us back in time. Thus time always has a powerful and imperative presence in our dynamic interaction with works of art.
