Labyrinth Highlights from "Action Thru Art"


Last week, GoodSpace Murals answered a call for white allies to respond to recent gun violence deaths of black men and police officers, by hosting an "Action through Art" a community mural painting event on Sat, Jul 16 at J.J. Hill Montessori School.  They invited other artists to offer other healing activities and we answer the call with an offer to set up a labyrinth and lead Dances of Universal Peace.  

Here's a few photos of the labyrinth from the event.  Go and check out the many beautiful photos and video taken throughout the day of the murals and mosaics at the Facebook event page.  

Two volunteers give the 3-circuit modified Classical labyrinth a test run.
Walkers were invited to leave behind their hopes, prayers, and dreams
"I hope that someday soon everyone will be treated the same."
"Be Brave
Think of others
Have crucial conversations
Listen to people's stories
Make connections"
"Flowers
Food
Freedom"
"LOVE
STAY AWAKE
TAKE ACTION"
"Rest in peace"
"May hamster will get sick."
"One by one"
"Peace"
"I believe that reason, passion, and justice will win the day"
"Love"
Here's another invitation (sorry it's not "on location")
The labyrinth was set a bit apart from the mural, mosaic and other art tables for some quiet reflection time. 
You can still see the chalk spray outline faintly on Sunday evening, even after the rain from Saturday night.
We would love updates if it's still visible and walkable.  

Thanks so much, GoodSpace Murals!  I hope we can collaborate again soon.

  2. I am cool with the page and fine with it being an open page. I only bring it up because there was recently a thread on the page discussing the open nature of the page. During that thread it was pointed out that the church opted not to operate a facebook page and so several congregants began and administer the page. There seemed to be a lot of folks who were surprised or had forgotten that the page was unofficial.

  3. Carnage, genocide, hijacks, refugees, terror-attacks, ethnic conflicts are so normal these days that it would take another Bertolt Brecht, with his new age Alienation Effect to sensitize the world to the true depths of its evil. These are forms of violence inconceivable even for the most daring of the Modernist avant garde minds. Today we see art standing powerless and mute in the face of the gruesomeness of experience.
