CHANGING VIEWS: ART, CONTEMPLATION & WELLNESS. Ed. by Lindsey Hepler. OpenGrounds, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, 2015. Distributed by University of Virginia Press, Charlottesville. 64 pp. with 23 ills. (14 col.). 24 x 22 cm. ISBN 9780989399524 In English.
Publisher's description: This companion volume to the OpenGrounds "Art, Contemplation, and Wellness" Forum presents dynamic and varied perspectives on the forum's theme, featuring work from practitioners, scholars, and students. Emerging from a partnership between the University of Virginia, The Phillips Collection, and the National Academy of Sciences, this book considers the museum as a meditative space, art as meditation, and the implications of both art and contemplation for human flourishing. The volume includes essays and images that highlight the intersections between aesthetic experience and human wellness as experienced in the physical space of the museum. It aims to explore both the experience of space and the experience of art within a contemplative framework of understanding, and to demonstrate the role of contemplation in clinical practice and education.
