New Exhibition Set for March 2020 in New York
Exciting news for Embracing Compassion as the exhibition is going to be experienced in New York at SUNY Potsdam. The exhibition will include a psychological research study about compassion and the artwork led by Dr. Melissa Dolese.
The SUNY Potsdam art museum has been known as the Gibson Gallery because of the generous art donated by Dr. Roland Gibson. The museum’s mission is to make the visual arts experience accessible to university students and staff plus the entire surrounding community.
The Embracing Compassion Experience includes seventeen unique art works of each Dalai Lama. It is perfectly suited for the SUNY Potsdam location since it offers progressive exhibitions and programming.
Dr. Melissa Dolese, School of the Arts and Sciences, has a true passion for art in the field of psychology. She is a uniquely qualified psychologist to lead a study on art and compassion because she focuses on the interconnection between art and psychology. She has studied how stimulus (like Embracing Compassion) can affect people’s aesthetic judgement and potentially influence how they feel about subjects like compassion when viewing artwork and after the viewing is over.
More details will follow in the coming weeks so stay tuned…
