Senior Exhibit Showcase

– Spring 2018

Mindfulness is about bringing your attention to the present moment and experiencing it with an open and curious attitude.


Music can be a focal point when practicing mindfulness as well as a source of creative energy. It can be a powerful way to be in the present moment.

This exhibit represents the culmination of my senior thesis. Throughout the year I conducted research on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and alternatives treatment options to medication.

Along with my exhibit, I designed a book that encapsulates all of my research and exploration leading up to the senior exhibition, which includes the campaign I developed to help incorporate mindfulness and time-management into the work day, because many people suffer from the symptoms of ADHD.

The exhibit invites the audience to try an exercise in mindful listening by following the prompt and focusing on the meditative music through noise-canceling headphones.

The key to mindfulness throughout daily activities is to bring your attention to the task at hand and successfully focusing on what’s key in the moment. Keychains are helpful reminders.

The exhibit is designed to be an immersive experience and a place of thoughtful pause and reflection. It demonstrates how mindfulness can be active and engaging.

The Senior Exhibition was open May 4–6, 2018, on the 27th floor of the US Bank in Downtown Phoenix.

The 2018 Senior Class raised nearly $10K in funds, planned, marketed and executed the Senior Exhibition. This experience was the most challenging yet rewarding aspect of the four-year program.
