What to do on a lazy summer day?
There’s always a book to read or
some yardwork waiting. So why not
try something different, like a visit
to an art museum or gallery?
Chances are, there’s one near
you, and here are a few things you
stand to gain by going:
1. A gallery excursion is a gift
that keeps on giving—studies
show that, while the pleasure of
buying something fades quickly,
actual experiences make for lasting,
2. It will give you something to
talk about. Old masterpieces open a
window to history, while contemporary
art is a great starting point for
discussing current events.
3. What you see might inspire
your own creative impulses.
4. You might leave feeling happier
and more relaxed—studies show
that looking at art releases dopamine
(the brain’s pleasure chemical)
and reduces the output of
cortisol (the stress hormone).
5. There could be a gift shop or
cafe right on site. Pastries and
