Can a walk through your favorite art museum increase your own creativity and ability to innovate? Author and art historian Jonathan Fineberg thinks so!
How Art Can Develop Your Brain". The interview was with art historian Jonathan Fineberg, talking about his his new book, Modern Art at the Border of Mind and Brain. During the interview, he referenced works by Dubuffet, Calder, Motherwell, Miro, and Christo.

"Based on Fineberg’s Presidential Lectures at the University of Nebraska,
his book examines the relationship between artistic production,
neuroscience, and the way we make meaning in form. Drawing on the art of
Robert Motherwell, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Christo, Jean Dubuffet,
and others, Fineberg helps us understand the visual unconscious, the
limits of language, and the political impact of art. Throughout, he
works from the conviction that looking is a form of thinking that has a
profound impact on the structure of the mind."
