Do Something New | Bonnie Pitman
Director Art-Brain Innovations, Center for BrainHealth
Distinguished scholar in residence, Edith O'Donnell Institute of Art History, The University of Texas at Dallas
Imagine waking up and doing something you’ve never done before every single day. You could experiment with a new recipe, explore a different place, or simply read a new novel – as long as you do something new. Bonnie Pitman adopted her daily practice, Do Something New™, over seven years ago. She will share her personal journey of living with chronic illness and how transforming an ordinary day to an extraordinary day has helped her live life with joy and compassion. Attend this enlightening session and learn how this simple practice can boost your brain performance and help build resilience. Leave inspired to adopt a practice of your own.
As the former director of the Dallas Museum of Art, Bonnie is a national leader in the public engagement of art. She recently published an Arts and Medicine feature article in the Journal of the American Medical Association celebrating the ways medicine and fine arts intersect.
