A few weeks ago the Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas announced that it would create a new institute that would be “a bridge between Asian art and western well being.” It named Jacqueline Buckingham Anderson, wife of DMA director Maxwell Anderson, as its director.
Anderson is “a recognized advocate in the field of wellness and lifestyle medicine.” States the Crow press release: “As American health declines, we want the Crow Collection to become known not only for its art and gardens but as a wellness center where nearby workers, families and children can experience everything from mini-meditation sessions to start the day off right, to health-oriented lectures, to yoga and tai chi.”
(Attached here is a presumably unauthorized mash-up featuring excerpts of a video Anderson made and released under the name Jacqueline Buckingham in 2013 explaining and showcasing her wellness philosophy. Her teenage son shot the original footage. We cannot find the intact original video online, but Tim Rogers of D Magazine keeps this version of it on indefinite life support on YouTube:)
