Hypnosis Tours: Deep Relaxation as a Pathway towards Connection with Art

Barbro Osher Sculpture Garden

A two part series where artists Cara Levine and Carissa Potter invite you to interact with the museum's exhibitions from a state of re-centered mind-body aptitude and oneness.

Tour will begin at Jame's Turrell's Three Gems located in the Osher Sculpture Garden.

Cara Levine is an artist exploring the intersections of the physical, metaphysical, traumatic, and illusionary through sculpture, video, and photography. She is an adjunct professor in Sculpture at UC Berkeley and CCA and has taught at Creative Growth Art Center. She has shown work nationally and internationally, including at the Wattis Center for Contemporary Art in San Francisco, The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, and The Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv. Levine has been in the healing arts for many years as a yogi and uses hypnotherapy to move her migraines as a chronic migraineur.

Carissa Potter's prints and small-scale objects reflect her hopeless romanticism through their investigations into public and private intimacy. Speaking both humorously and poignantly to the human condition, Potter's work touches chords we all can relate to - exploring situations we've all experienced at some point in our lives and conveying messages we simply long to hear. Carissa is a founding member of Colpa Press and founder of People I’ve Loved. Carissa received her MFA in Printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2010.
