Culture Brain Boost: Art & Music in Northeast Wisconsin

Updated:
Looking at art can stimulate the same part of the brain that's responsible for good decision making, according to studies.

We have a lot of choices for great museums in Northeast Wisconsin.

Starting in June, The Paine Art Center in Oshkosh has an exhibit on Henri Matisse, who was one of the most famous artists of the 20th century.  You can find out more here: http://www.thepaine.org/

The Trout Museum of Art in Appleton has an exhibit right now of artistic photography created with an iPhone.  Find out more here: http://www.troutmuseum.org/

You can also get a brain boost by listening to music. A British study says listening to music actually boosts blood flow in the brain. Also, music therapy is used in hospitals to relieve stress and speed healing.

The Dudley Birder Chorale has about a 150 singers and gives performances in De Pere and Green Bay.  You can find out about them here:

New Voices, formerly known as the White Heron Chorale, has 75 singers and gives several concerts a year, mostly in the Appleton area. Find out more here: http://newvoiceschoir.org/
