Marsden Hartley is a Maine-born artist who has been identified with the LGBTQIA+ community. His painting Late Fall, Maine conveys a cool calmness and is evocative of his continued artistic exploration of nature. The Tree yoga pose alludes to the sturdy trees depicted and helps build the strength of the body core, encouraging one to strengthen their inner calm.
As part of Let Art Inspire, the Museum’s wellness initiative, Artful Movements provides an opportunity to practice a series of gentle yoga poses inspired by artworks in the galleries. These free one-hour sessions begin with a deeper look at an artwork, followed by a series of gentle poses and meditation led by Kathleen Leisure Haberstock of School Street Yoga.
All yoga levels, families, and children 7 and older are welcome. A limited number of yoga mats will be available; guests are encouraged to bring their own. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to stretch.
All participants will meet in the William D. Adams Gallery/Museum lobby.
