The exhibit invited you to spend a bit more time with an artwork than you normally would. Some of the artworks had guided meditations that went along with them. And one even required you to spend time watching as you waited for rocks to melt out of the artwork and fall into a box of hollow sticks bellow which created sounds or "music."
Here are some pictures and videos from the exhibit. Non-flash photography was allowed.

|To carry with you as you pondered and really studied the works of art|
|Screens were provided to create a wall of privacy as you did the guided meditations that coincided with some of the artworks.|

We would both highly recommend bringing your children to the exhibit and giving them a chance to share with you their knowledge of mindfulness and to see how mindfulness can be used as a way of being present and to appreciate and really see the beauty that is around them, whether that is in art, in nature, or within themselves.
We literally closed the museum tonight. We took our time and enjoyed each part of the exhibit. We hope many of you will get a chance to do the same.
