Art of Awareness is a program for museum guests to gather around a featured work in the Currier’s collection and, through the power of art, become friends of thought.

Rosie Latona of White Swan Yoga, and Suzanne Canali, Director of Education, invite you to a 30-minute awareness exercise and discussion to build connections with each other and works of art on exhibition. One work of art is the focus each week and is chosen based upon a theme. General admission is free on Thursday nights from 5 to 8 pm for Art After Work

Thursday, June 8
Meet in the European Gallery
