Tips for a Safe and Healthy Spring Break

1. Aim for 8 hours of sleep a night.
2. Wear sunscreen with SPF every day, even when it's cloudy. The sun never stops shining.
3. Carve out a moment for yourself at least once a day.
4. Stay hydrated by carrying around a water bottle with you. You don't have to be an athlete to get dehydrated.
5. Do things that make you happy, as frequently as possible. Stress reducers are an important part to staying healthy.
6. Aim for 60 minutes of cardio a day. If not possible, move as much as you can (stairs over elevator, etc.)
7. Don't forget fruits and vegetables. They contain essential vitamins and minerals you can't get anywhere else.
8. Schedule yearly check ups with your doc. Physicals keep you up to date on your body.
9. Stretch before working out to reduce muscle injuries, and after to increase flexibility.
10. Don't let the people you love slip to the wayside. Call people you haven't in a while to keep your relationships healthy.

Free Event at Seattle Art Museum Sculpture Park

An event shared to us by Natalie Riha, a faculty member of the Art Department!

​Join me on March 19th, 7-9pm, at the Seattle Art Museum Sculpture Park

as I present a new project through Art Encounters in the Park. These events were designed to provide the audience with an opportunity to help create social sculpture and build environments in response to the Olympic Sculpture Park.

On March 19th you will be guided through various creative investigations of forming landscape, a participatory public experiment in reconsidering and re-designing our collective relationship to our built systems. Prompted to consider the limited range of emotional and psychological experiences offered through our everyday objects, you will make a raw clay cup that reflects immediate action and reaction to a form. With this ubiquitous material your cups can be used to consume cocktails that are infused with native plants from the Seattle area. The raw clay will act as not only the container to drink from, but also an ingredient in the cocktail. This is inspired by the origin of food and the preparation, etiquette, history and culture around it that parallels that of object design. As the evening progresses you will add your cup to a collection of critical objects that attempts to deviate from the conventional ingrained response to objects and cultivates the potential for public debates about the social, cultural, environmental and ethical impact our changing landscape could have on our everyday life.

This event is FREE! You can RSVP here to let us know you are coming, but you can always stop by without an RSVP too.

Hope to see you there!
