Viewing Art Improves Wellbeing

Researchers understand that viewing art can have a positive effect on our mood, but what about viewing art through a screen? 240 study participants viewed an interactive Monet Water Lily art exhibition from Google Arts and Culture. MacKenzie Trupp, study author from the University of Vienna, explains that “Online art viewing is an untapped source of support for well-being that can be consumed as bite-sized bits of meaning-making and pleasure.” These results are interesting for individuals who cannot go see art in person but would still like to get the benefit of viewing it.
