It’s happening again! Sacred Art II, a devotional art show, is back and bigger than ever. I have to admit that after last year’s Sacred HeArt event concluded with the incredible success of over 400 people in attendance, life-size sculptures, a Labyrinth, and a truly transformational event design space, this year, we are bringing on an even bigger team to exceed the lofty expectations. And this is where it starts—the inspirations.
Heaven, celestial, ethereal, metaphysical, earth, water, light, and synchronicity—these are just a few of the verbal columns that shape this event. Last year’s Sacred HeArt was dedicated to divinity, interpretation, rebirth, and the life and teachings of Christ through the artists’ point of view, and it was magical. But what happens when you start questioning the divine in conjunction with purpose? What happens when you start examining what lies beyond the acceptance of faith, of any kind, and truly embrace the “HeArt” of mankind? What happens when you stop thinking with your head and start living from your heart?
Do your actions matter, or do they disappear like a helium balloon released into the sky, never to be seen again? Well, as Linnae Asiel describes, one of her most dominant memories from childhood supports the idea that actions do matter: “Someone from my church donated money for food and presents during Christmas time to my family. I never actually met these people and never found out who they were, but that simple act of kindness transformed how I saw and experienced people. And, not only that, but it’s amazing to think about how many people I have helped because of these strangers. The present they gave me wasn’t food or a Christmas present under the tree, it was an eternal gift of love, gratitude and appreciation, and the knowing that my actions matter to people I don’t know and probably will never meet.”
What are your actions saying about you and your life? Because one thing is for sure—our choices matter, and they have eternal implications in this world and whatever comes next. Sacred Art II explores these concepts through an experiential event of lucid dreaming, fantasy, and an exploration of live art and model installations by Linnae Asiel and Tulio Flores, with Enhanced Lighting for atmosphere by John Woods, as well as music and live performances. Also, Asiel Design will be working with World Vision, an organization dedicated to working with communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling challenges such as poverty and injustice.
We at Asiel Design have been working with World Vision for many years, and this has been one of the most rewarding companies that we have partnered with over the years. It is an honor to be working with them for Sacred Art II.
People and life are miraculous; there is no question about that. Sacred Art II brings together some of the most incredible artists in Northern California to represent life’s most dynamic mystery: What if you truly matter? I look forward to seeing you at the warehouse for our 2015 Sacred Art event!
