Commissioned by the Spencer, artists Velasco and Davidson-Hues have created an unusual "way-finding system" for the museum. Inspired by images from the SMA collection and common traffic signage, their works outside the museum announce "Warning: Art Approaching," while MP3 audio tours inside offer offbeat looks at the collection, encouraging visitors to slow down and, as the title suggests, stop, look, and listen.

An installation by Janet Davidson-Hues & Maria Velasco. Commissioned by the Spencer Museum of Art.
