Seeing More Clearly

Mindfulness in the Museum

Steve Martin, the celebrated comedian and playwright, is the curator of a stunning new exhibition at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts entitled, The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris. Mr. Martin also has an original way to appreciate art. He and his wife sit down in front of a painting, relaxing with a glass of wine, and watch it like a TV show, enjoying it, talking about it, and finding new things to see. While we can’t take wine into an art museum, we can find new ways to enhance our understanding of art, bringing a greater depth of awareness to what we see.
