Spotlight on Care: Art & Well-being

11:00am-12:00pm CT Thursday, May 6, 2021 Online
Hosted by The Commons, the IPSR Center for Compassionate and Sustainable Communities, and the Spencer Museum of Art; with support from the Environmental Studies Program, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the Center for Faculty Development and Mentoring

Casey Mesick Braun (Curator of Global Indigenous Art at the Spencer Museum of Art), and Cara Weeks Neuburger (ATR, LCPC at Sunflower Art Therapy), will co-facilitate a session that explores how art can promote well-being, adaptability, and self-care. Casey will lead a slow exploration of a newly commissioned artwork currently on view in the exhibition Healing, Knowing, Seeing the Body at the Spencer Museum of Art, offering an opportunity for pause, reflection, and contemplation. Cara will then guide us through an art-making activity to promote creative ways for self-care. No special materials are required.
