Event description

Description

Join us for a 20 minute mediation session that is set in the midst of Democratic Vistas at the Galleres of Contemporary Art's UCCS campus location (GOCA1420, Centennial Hall, room 201). This free meditation session is part of #WellnessWednesday, a partnership between the Wellness Center and Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) at UCCS.

GOCA and the Wellness Center have teamed up to promote wellness and self-care across the UCCS community by offering free meditation and yoga sessions that take place among the current exhibition in the campus gallery. These free programs take place every Wednesday starting September 13 until the exhibit closes on December 9.




ABOUT THE EXHIBIT: Democratic Vistas
The art of Betty Ross and Murray Ross traverses time, world travels, and concepts and connects across a lifelong collaboration. As founders of UCCS Theatreworks, Betty and Murray were always artists in their own right and together. Works in painting, drawing, and assemblage will fill our flagship space for one last hurrah. This is the final exhibition in the UCCS GOCA 1420 gallery space, opened in 1981, before moving to the new Ent Center for the Arts in 2018. Regular exhibit hours are Thursday through Sunday, 1-6pm.
