From Museum Meditation Sessions to Painted Fallen Leaves

Robot-inspired body paintings, jewelry pieces created from one's heartbeat and paper lamps that take after the shapes of animals are among a few of the top November 2016 art ideas.

Some of the most interesting art pieces to be launched as of late are powered by technology and include mirrored installations like Fragments, which responds to those who look at it and the Electropollock robot, which creates colorful paintings in the somewhat haphazard style of abstract expressionist artist Jackson Pollock.

As a whole, art museums are now being transformed into dynamic spaces with offerings such as public meditation programs, kinetic graffiti exhibits powered by virtual reality and translucent coffee kiosks that seamlessly blend into the surrounding space. Rather than just going to a museum to "see" art, people are beginning to rethink museums as places to experience thought-provoking creations in a number of ways.
