Art of Rest

Art of Rest

Art of Rest is a quarterly mindfulness program in partnership with Replenish Well & The Yoga Carriage.

With the rush of the busy world, how do we infuse rest into our everyday life?

Join us for an intentional, inspired, and communal 2-hour rest curation. We invite in spaciousness, curiosity, and calm. We will explore ways to create equanimity in the body, mind, and heart through the energy giving power of rest. Art of Rest is an invitation to calm the central nervous system and re-awaken you to present moment awareness.

Rest requires comfort. Wear comfortable layers of clothing for temperature regulation.
Please bring a yoga mat, blanket and one or two pillows. We recommend having a journal, pencil, and water bottle.

Cost of the program is $25 for members, $30 for nonmembers. Registration is encouraged.

Unraveling Gender: Pop Culture’s Influence on Self-Presentation

Unraveling Gender: Pop Culture’s Influence on Self-Presentation

Explore the intricacies of gender expression as reflected in the exhibitions Robin F. Williams: We’ve Been Expecting You and Marie Laurencin: Sapphic Paris.

The evening starts with a guided gallery experience exploring how these artists navigate themes of identity, gender, and societal expectations through their art, followed insightful dialogue and interactive activities facilitated by Dr. Meghna Mahambrey, founder of SPARK Relationship + Sexual Wellness, where guests will challenge these norms and redefine the boundaries of gender expression.

This immersive experience invites you to question, reflect, and embrace the diverse spectrum of self-expression. Whether you’re a seasoned art enthusiast or new to the conversation, “Unraveling Gender” promises to inspire meaningful discussions and ignite personal insights you’ll carry with you well beyond the evening.

Tickets are $30 for members and $35 for nonmembers and includes one drink ticket redeemable that evening at Schokko Café during BAM Thursdays, open until 10:00 PM.

Take a Wellness Break
A guide to support a mindful museum visit

Art and museum experiences can help us slow down, find calm, connect with our interior lives, and transport us to new places. All of this helps promote a sense of well-being.

Here are some principles to guide you through a mindful museum experience:

    • Slowing down has value.
    • It is enough to be present.
    • There is no right and wrong.
    • Tune into your breath. Breathe deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth.
    • Listen to your body; this experience should be restful and restorative. Sit if you need to. Close your eyes and disconnect if that is what your body wants.
    • Look with fresh eyes and be open to wonder and curiosity.

Mindfulness Activities:

Five Senses
Spend a few minutes in the sculpture garden, the atrium, or a gallery, with your eyes closed. What sounds do you notice? What smells? Does the air feel warm or cool, is it still or moving? As best you can, try not to attach judgment to these observations, just practice noticing sensations.

Take a Trip
Find a landscape. Take one silent minute to let your eyes pass over the work of art. Now close your eyes and imagine stepping into the scene. What sounds might you hear? What does the air feel like on your skin?

Find Meaning
Find a work of art that you feel conveys a sense of care. Spend some time with it. Don’t read the label. Consider, what drew you to this work? What about it communicates care to you? When you are ready, look around and find a very different work. How does it connect to care? Try the same with another idea that matters to you, perhaps calm, listening, or compassion.
