  • Harn Museum of Art
    Thought it was opened just in 2012, the Harn Museum of Art's 26,000-square foot David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing has quite a bit of history on its hands. There are nearly 700 works on display, all chosen from the museum's collection of more than 2,000 pieces. Dating from the Neolithic period to today, the pieces hail from countries such as India, Persia, Vietnam, and Japan. Asian art makes up a quarter of the Harn's more than 10,000 works, which, along with travelling exhibitions, fill 32,800 square feet of gallery space. You’ll walk past African wooden masks, metalwork, and ceramics, as well as almost 1,000 modern prints, drawings, and paintings—including canvases by Claude Monet. Breaking the tradition of many art museums’ “Do not touch” signs, the Bishop Study Center has exhibit-related objects that can be gently touched, though you are not allowed to break apart any sculptures in search of hidden treasure maps. Beyond exhibits, the Harn hosts frequent events including lectures, film screenings, live performances, and interactive programs for students and families.

  • Lifestyle Wellness
    Comprised of dieticians, physiologists, and personal trainers, the fit staff members at LifeStyle Wellness all share the same belief: prevention is the best medicine. That's why they anchor their philosophy on the benefits of regular exercise, pairing their expert nutritional counseling with yoga, Pilates, and group fitness classes. The well-roundedness of this approach is evidenced in fitness expert Laura Acosta's Living Lean program, an eight-week class exclusive to LifeStyle that combines customized meal plans with personal training and group support. By eschewing a one-size-fits-all approach to any of their programs, LifeStyle's staff members are able to provide personalized attention and custom-made programs for every client. Additionally, each group fitness class is capped at about five students to ensure instructors bestow each pupil with individualized tips and a pair of monogrammed workout socks.
