Beholding and Being Awake to Mindfulness
November 23, 2010 - February 6, 2011
John A. and Helen P. Becker Gallery

Beholding and Being Awake to Mindfulness is the outcome of a semester-long study and practice of mindfulness by students in “Mindful Learning,” a senior-level education course. Thirteen students in the seminar created this installation by consensus, choosing each work for its reflection of thoughtful practices, or ability to invoke a mindful experience. This installation encourages the viewer to slow down, look deeply, and behold.
