In an Astounding New Book, a Neuroscientist Reveals the Profound Real-World Benefits Art Has on Our Brains.
What may seem intuitive, but is scientifically demonstrated in Art That Heals, is that art of all kinds acts on our brains in a multi-faceted, dynamic way. Neural networks are formed to achieve heightened, complex states of connectivity. In other words, art can “sculpt” and even “caress” our brains. So when we say a work of art moves us, that is physically the case.
Kevin Sampson has spent decades making art from found objects — an ashtray, a chair, some animal bones, a model train car.
Now he’s become a piece of animated art.
Sampson is set to get “Arthurized” and play himself in an upcoming episode of the PBS series “Arthur.”
“It came out of the blue,” Sampson, 66, tells NJ Advance Media. “It was just something so different ... I never thought I’d wind up a cartoon.”
Though Kahlo died in 1954 at the young age of 47, her life continues to inspire people around the globe today. One person particularly enamored with her story is Arianna Davis, a journalist and digital director of O, the Oprah Winfrey Magazine. Davis recently published her first book, What Would Frida Do?: A Guide to Living Boldly, which channels Kahlo’s legacy through a self-help lens to guide readers toward unapologetic pursuit of their desires. On this week’s episode, Davis joins the podcast to discuss her book, its lessons, and the artist at the foundation of both.
