This is the next installment in the Returning Home series where I shine a light on places that accelerate my transcendance and assist in restoring my inner peace. Given the recent news of the Trump upset presidential victory, I go to my love of art as a way to get back to my “happy place”.

I visited the Phila Museum of Art ( aka the Art Museum) for my birthday. I have been there numerous times over the years and it is a gorgeous building that houses extraordinary art. I have not considered it to be one of my “power places” per se, but I have found my visits to be inspiring, soothing, and occasionally transformative.

The current draw is  Paint the Revolution, the Mexican modernism exhibit which features the works of Rivera, Kahlo, and others. While I did enjoy this presentation, I was totally enthralled with the redesign of the South Asian galleries. They did a bang up job of re-envisioning a treasure trove of architecture, jewelry, artifacts, and much, much, more. I was able to take a few shots with my cellphone, which apparently is ” a thing”. I had no idea visitors were allowed to do this.

 Please enjoy:

While South American and South Asian cultures have little in common, I relished their contrasts and the emotional resonances that were provoked within. I semi-randomly assembled a mix of both collections to display here, including a gorgeous mandala as the header image.  An unexpected delight was this partially hidden Sufi manuscript exhibit that was converted to an animation piece. Entitled Disruption as Rapture, within about five minutes my higher self was dissolving into the ethers. It has been quite some time since I experienced a dissolution of self. Pretty cool. With a name like Disruption as Rapture, this “performance art” certainly depicts how one can thrive during these uncertain times.

      This visit was BEFORE the election, but still reverberates. I may have overstated, but I definitely felt the 3D realm dissolve…

      hugs, Linda

        Oh, right, it was on your birthday already. At first, I thought that you went there because you wanted comfort after the election. Good to know it still reverberates.

        To clarify, I composed the post to clam myself down and center on the art and video. Watch the video in fullscreen and it will give you a taste 😉
