Spending a few mindful minutes with a work of art can be especially powerful during this time, when life is unexpectedly complex and we often feel we have more questions than there are answers.

You don’t need an “answer” here—what you see, feel, and think are all valid. Interacting with works of art lets us engage with the creative spirit and contemplate our shared humanity, which can alleviate some of the stress of these uncertain days.

In appreciation for everything nurses and all health care professionals are undertaking, the National Gallery of Art offers a moment of quiet reprieve—for health care workers and anyone else who could benefit. They invite you to take some time away from complications and worry by exploring a work of art with them in a guided meditation.

Thank you for everything you are doing for all of us. nga.gov/blog/artful-moments-frontline-workers.
