Gallery Program: Intersections



Admission actions

  • Free with museum admission

The topic for this month's Intersections is Self Care, or Self Preservation?

Ranging from yoga retreats to mobile meditation apps, self-care practices have emerged as a popular way to cope with the stressors of the world around us. How do we balance this attention to internal wellbeing with our external roles as citizens and neighbors? Join museum educators Paulina Lopez and Nenette Luarca-Shoaf as we examine the act and outcomes of turning inward. 

In this interactive series, the Art Institute’s encyclopedic collection serves as a catalyst for conversations about urgent social questions and current events. Come ready to participate and create community through dialogue about art. Facilitators select featured artworks and post them here in advance of each discussion in order to be responsive to an ever-changing world.
