You’re invited! Celebrate the release of Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross’ new book, “Your Brain on Art: How the Arts Transform Us” with an evening at the Baltimore Museum of Art on March 22!
Join the authors in dialogue with WYPR host Tom Hall, Johns Hopkins professors John Krakauer and Meg Chisolm, and arts and health artist Fred Johnson to discover how the arts transform us.
“Your Brain on Art: How the Arts Transform Us” shares the new science behind humanity’s evolutionary birthright — to make and behold art and its power to transform our lives. What artists have always known, and researchers are now proving is that arts, in all its forms, amplify physical and mental health, learning and flourishing and build stronger communities.
We’re on the verge of a cultural shift in which the arts and aesthetics can deliver potent, accessible, and proven solutions for the well-being of everyone. Through the lens of the expanding field of neuroaesthetics, the two of us introduce world-renowned researchers, clinicians, and arts practitioners on the cutting edge of science, the arts and technology who are revolutionizing how we think about, and engage with, the arts.
