Cancelled! “Art as Therapy” | Book + Art: A Mash-Up for Art & Book Lovers
Book + Art is a series that connects the public with reading and visual arts. For March the featured pairing is “Art as Therapy”, by Alain de Botton and A Revisionary Museum Tour. De Botton’s book suggests a new approach to looking at art and investigates how certain works may have clues related to managing the tensions, joy, and confusion of life. Re-imagine the Museum’s galleries along the lines de Botton proposes following the book discussion. Attendees may visit their local library branch to check out a copy of the book.
This event is supported in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with Friends of the Palm Beach County Public Library, Inc.
