Event: Mindful Awareness Sessions

Dates: Wednesdays, 12:30pm – 1:00pm (winter quarter)

Location: Powell Library, East Rotunda

Mindful Awareness is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental and emotional experiences. Mindfulness has scientific support as a means to reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional re-activity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being.

The weekly “drop-in” sessions are led by UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center’s Diana Winston and Marvin Belzer.

These sessions are open to students, faculty, staff, and anyone else interested in learning how to ‘live more presently’ in life.

Art and Revolution

Powell Library Rotunda
Admission free; no reservations required

Out of a desire to allow student artists to express their own ideas in a place of tolerance and acceptance, the Art History Undergraduate Student Association presents its annual art exhibit entitled “Art and Revolution,” exploring Paul Gauguin’s statement that “art is either plagiarism or revolution.” Specific concerns of the artists are addressed in a thought-provoking way that challenges the viewer to not only think about these issues but also raises the question, what does revolution mean to you?
