making a life of art, art of your life

"I want to integrate life and art so that as our art expands our life deepens and as our life deepens our art expands." — Anna Halprin
Words from the wise...Stopping into Halprin's show last night after work was the balm I needed for an underslept day. There was a packed show to view the exhibit chronicling her career in dance and healing, as well as performance. Before negotiating the crowds; however, I stopped into the other show that's up at "The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama," which includes work by Laurie Anderson, Richard Avedon, Sanford Biggers, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Chuck Close, and Bil Viola. Lots to contemplate and I walked part-way home quietly motivated to keep up the work.
