Event Description:

SOLD OUT! Contact the Indiana Medical History Museum to be wait-listed ( 

A glimpse into the science and the art of dreams. Experts in neurology and art therapy discuss the inner workings of our dreaming minds.

How the dreaming mind works remains surprisingly unknown. Science of Sleep dares to answer: How do we dream? Why do we dream? What purpose do our dreams hold? Examining dreams from the perspectives of science and art therapy, by neurologist Dr. Robert Pascuzzi and art therapist Juliet King, the audience will learn about the biology, neurology, and psychology of brain science as well as the creative, personal, and imaginative aspects of dreaming. The history of dream theory, symbolism, and how dreams inform the work of art therapists will also be explored before attendees are invited to tour the museum and view artwork created by members of the Indiana Art Therapy Association as part of a summer-long visual dream journaling project.

Due to limited seating, RSVPs are no longer being accepted. Please contact the Indiana Medical History Museum at to be added to the wait list. 

Presented by Art of the Soul Studio, Indiana School of Medicine Department of Neurology, IUPUI Herron School of Art and Design Art Therapy Department, Indiana Art Therapy Association, and St. Mary-of-the-Woods College Art Therapy Department.
