Art as medicine |

Art as medicine

As any Aspenites worth their minds, bodies, and spirits know, our valley’s abundance of arts and culture does wonders for the soul.

But did you know that exposure to music, dance, and other artistic forms can have demonstrable benefits for patients suffering from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other disorders?

Elizabeth Auer of the University of Florida will explain this ground-breaking work tonight at the Limelight from 6 to 8 p.m. in conversation with Gena Buhler, executive director of the Wheeler Opera House. Local singer/songwriter Dan Sheridan will perform as part of the presentation.

Please consider attending to learn more about the healing powers of the arts.
