Your Brain on Art - Ivy Ross and Susan Magsamen
Listen now
Description - The idea that art-making and life-building are in a symbiotic relationship that fuels one another is the basis behind Art2Life. Other than personally experiencing art’s life-giving ability, I’ve never had any hard evidence to support this concept…until now. Meet Ivy Ross and Susan Magsamen. They've co-written an amazing and newly released book called Your Brain On Art that explains how our brains and bodies transform when we participate in the arts and how this knowledge can improve our health, enable us to flourish, and build stronger communities.
