About This Event

Event Description:

Imagine this: You are at a performance or viewing a painting in a museum. As you quietly observe this art, neural actions are triggered in your brain, sending chills down your spine. What are these sensations? What has created this perception you are sensing? How is it we see beyond what is in front of us? Join Caroline Kohles, senior program director of Health and Wellness, for an interview with visual artist Naomi Andrée Campbell. Learn how working with Senior Scientist Adriana Nemes, laboratory manager at Howard Hughes Medical Institute/Columbia University, has impacted her work as a visual artist. Discover why she continues to be fascinated by the power of interaction of the brain/mind with art and how you, too, can expand your perception.
