An artwork a day – does indeed keep the doctor away!

The Art Newspaper reports:
“Sorry ladies, a recent study found that men, not women, who participate in cultural activities are happier and healthier than men who don’t take in the occasional exhibition. Conducted at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the study found that all cultural pastimes, be they musical, theatrical or artistic, are associated with good health in men. Church attendance and sporting event led to increased life satisfaction for women. Gender aside, the more activities a person participated in, the happier he or she tended to be. The study may result in a new class of men – one that ditches Super Bowl Sunday for Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.”
