The Emotional Brain is an exhibition about strong feelings, one which hopefully will inspire visitors to consider mind-body connections, mental health, and wellness. At a time of high rates of stress, anxiety, and depression, especially among college students, this exhibition aims to spark conversations about self-care and naturalizing emotions. This exhibition may also include adjunct events exploring the role of the arts in health. Dr. Jinaki Flint, of the Counseling Center of Tulane University, is serving as an advisor to this exhibition.

Gallery hours: M – F, 9 am – 4 pm
Gallery closed on official Tulane holidays.
