Self-Care Sunday

It’s important to slow down and take time for self-care, and art can be the perfect entry to a moment of rest.

Celebrating Landscapes

Celebrate Nature with Beethoven and Beautiful Landscapes

What better way to practice self-care than by celebrating nature? Enjoy the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 paired with scenes of landscapes from our collection and from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and photographer Paul Selvaggio. Let this celebration of spring inspire you to enjoy some fresh air today, in whatever way you safely can.

Meditative Motion with Giacometti’s Walking Man I

Once the object has been constructed, I have a tendency to rediscover in it, transformed and displaced, images, impressions, facts which have deeply moved me (often without my knowing it).

Guided Color Meditation Featuring Joan Mitchell’s Low Water

People will never understand what we are doing if they can’t feel… All art Is abstract. All music is abstract. But it’s all real.

Take a Calming Virtual Trip to the Sea

It’s Self-Care Sunday! For a moment of rest, take a virtual trip to the sea with Pierre Alechinsky’s lithograph, Untitled. We recommend pairing this artwork with a glass of cold water and Mendelssohn’s Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage, Opus 27.
