Karen S. Newton, MPH, RDN, Wellbeing & Resilience Integrator and UofL Adjunct Faculty


The Speed Art Museum is collaborating with UofL Health Promotion, local musicians, and community mindfulness teachers to provide guidance that will enhance your present moment experiences in the Speed. We have suggested a gallery for each theme, but you are welcome to engage with another artwork if it catches your eye. Download your selection(s) from iTunes, Soundcloud, or the Speed Art Museum’s website. Using your smart phone and headphones, you are guided to spend 10 minutes or more with one work of art
