Through our website, newsletter, and alumni quarterly, The Sachs Program highlights events, performances, exhibitions, and other forms of public engagement on and off campus. Most of what we list is neither produced nor directly supported by The Sachs Program. Our intent is to point you to the great things happening at Penn and driven by Penn faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Penn is a destination for the arts. Happenings are what we think you should be experiencing now.

Friday 20 SeptemberMindfulness at the Museum
Mindfulness at the Museum is a series of drop-in guided meditation sessions facilitated by skilled holistic practitioners. The ICA hosts Mindfulness at the Museum most Fridays throughout the year, from noon to 1 PM. Each session begins with a brief description of how the interaction will unfold. From there, you are led into either walking or seated mediation for approximately 20 – 30 minutes, as you collectively engage with mindfulness in silence with fellow participants. The session wraps-up with a moment of reflection, providing you with an opportunity to learn more about the individuals you’ve taken this journey with, and how your collective experiences relate to art.
