Talk & Tour: The Roots of Happiness
Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show

Talk & Tour: The Roots of Happiness

Stefan Sagmeister: The Happy Show is one of the largest exhibitions in MOV's 120-year history. It transcends the boundary between art and design. It takes over museum galleries and in-between spaces – stairwells, hallways, and restrooms – in order to ask: what makes us happy?

How do choices, nature, spirituality, and the conditions of children’s lives impact happiness? Psychological researcher Dr. Mark Holder of the University of British Columbia will discuss this question. During an interactive exhibition tour, Dr. Holder will explain his positive psychology research.

Please note that the exhibition includes adult themes and content.

Date: Thursday, July 2, 2015
Time: 7:00pm
Admission: Adult $14 | Seniors & Students $11 | Youth $8 | MOV Members Free
