During spring 2022, Dr. Colleen Stockmann led the Critical Issues in Art cohort to examine how arts institutions address and inform social issues including mental health. In an application of their research and inquiry, the cohort curated an exhibition of a series of immersive experiences that address mental health topics and tactics for wellbeing. In creative conjunction with Nobel Conference 58, the Schaefer Art Gallery has created an exhibition by selecting some of these experiences and installing them for viewers to participate in.  The exhibition includes immersive stations and installations designed to engage a viewer’s multiple senses within topics of creative expression, wellbeing, and self-reflection.
