Arts & The Brain
The therapeutic power of art—to comfort, to heal, to elevate quality of life—has inspired human creativity for centuries. Strathmore’s Arts and the Brain lecture series engages teachers, scholars, and artists working at the intersection of arts and health to present innovative, practical strategies for harnessing the arts to alleviate suffering and strengthen vitality.
All lectures take place Thursdays at 7:30pm in the Mansion at Strathmore. Tickets $25 for each lecture.

MICROSCOPY AS MASTERPIECE
This pop-up art exhibit, presented by Strathmore in partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), takes inner beauty to a new level, presenting stunning brain microscopy images from NIH-supported researchers. Be sure to plan some extra time when you come for an Arts & The Brain lecture to check out this elevation of the human brain to a work of fine art.
