Each session will begin with a guided focus on a specific work of art or architecture, the release said. Attendees will be encouraged to observe, reflect on the colors, shapes and emotions, and to carry that sense of mindfulness into their wellness sessions.

“By weaving discussions of wellness into the art experience, we not only enhance our appreciation for art but also create a safe space for meaningful conversations that contribute to breaking the stigma surrounding these critical aspects of human existence,” Buttacavoli said.

The following sessions will be offered at the Arcade:

Wednesday and Thursday programs will be held in the Arcade’s Rotunda. Friday and Saturday programs will be held in The Contemporary Dayton.
