The Art of Living Well
November 7 - June 15, 2013
The Muscatine Art Center will open its new exhibition, The Art of Living Well, on Thursday, November 7th with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The Art of Living Well is an opportunity to showcase the Art Center’s permanent collection while exploring some of the principles from the Blue Zones Project™.
Muscatine is among ten communities in Iowa that have been chosen as Blue Zones Project demonstration sites. The purpose of the Blue Zones Project is to encourage principles that make it possible for people to live longer, healthier and happier lives. The Art of Living Well is presented in five sections – Work, Play, Relax, Belong and Eat. Visitors will explore each of these sections and discover examples of “move naturally,” “know your purpose,” “down shift,” “loved ones first,” “right tribe,” “plant slant” and other core principles of the Power 9®.
