"Future" (1941) illustrates Agnes Pelton’s spiritual pilgrimage to Cathedral City, California, and the hardships that she endured prior to arriving there. The pillars in the center represent The Arch, the entrance to Cathedral City. The Arch encompasses Mount San Jacinto, which Pelton saw as a path to enlightenment. "Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist," the first exhibition on the little-known American painter in more than 24 years, is on view at Phoenix Art Museum now through September 8.

Inside the first main hallway of the Phoenix Museum of art. I was immediately in awe of this art installation and the feeling that it invokes as you walk by!😍 This art installation is called Black Cloud by Carlos Morales, who is one of the most celebrated Mexican artists working today. If you zoom in, you'll see that the black "spots" are actually 25,000 black paper butterflies of 30 different species that seem to hover in mid air! The artist created this art installation after being inspired by the annual migration of monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico. It is truly a must see!

Are you experiencing @form this weekend? This year, as part of #PhxArt Projects, and through the generosity of a grant from VeroTrue Social, Phoenix Art Museum will present new work at FORM by Tempe-based artist @reallyrealkristinbauer . "Elemental" is an interactive Maypole structure about the layers of human and earth connection of intention and in movement, as well as contemporary adaptation of an ancient multicultural seasonal ritual to call in the spirit of abundance and festivity. The text content references the elements, Earth, Water, Wind, and Fire as present in the experience in the festival, in our bodies and our unity to other life forms, as well as our vital human connection to the elements for spiritual and physical survival.
See it at #formarcosanti May 10-12, 2019! Learn more about Kristin here: http://www.phxart.org/formarcosanti

Happy birthday to painter and sculptor, Hugo Robus, who was born on this day in 1885. A graduate of the National Academy of Design in New York, e experimented with modern painting styles such as futurism and created brightly colored, semi-abstract images of figures and landscapes. When he was thirty-five, however, he turned his attention completely to sculpture and spent the rest of his life modeling images in clay to be cast in plaster and bronze. (Tarbell, Hugo Robus, 1885-1964, 1980). "Early American Modernism: The Decade of the Armory Show" features works spanning the first decades of the twentieth century by American artists experimenting with modernism, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Konrad Cramer, Arthur Bowen Davies, Stuart Davis, Marsden Hartley, Marguerite and William Zorach, Alice Trumbull Mason, and others. See it this weekend for free on Discount Tire Free Family Sunday - May 12, noon to 5 pm!

Ramadan, which officially began May 5, 2019, is the holiest month of the year for Muslims and is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Each year, nearly 2 billion Muslims around the world commemorate this period of spiritual devotion by fasting during sunlit hours, between 11 to 16 hours per day depending on the time of year, often breaking fast communally before sunrise and after sunset. Observers of Ramadan are also encouraged to abstain from swearing, lying, gossip, and other activities that may distract from self-reflection and are encouraged instead to engage in positive activities espoused by the other four Pillars such as charity and prayer. Many mosques host community dinners or fundraisers during this sacred time.
