This past weekend Jennifer Schelter PAFA alumna invited me to a beautiful meditation at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) . If you are not aware of PAFA The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts is a museum and art school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1805 and is the first and oldest art museum and art school in the United States.
Currently the work of Rina Banerjee: Make Me a Summary of The World is on display and where the meditation took place. When Jennifer invited me to come out to take some photos of the event I was a little unsure of how I was going to capture a meditation event. Once I walked into the doors of PAFA I knew that I just walked into a space of beauty and creation and any concern about capturing this event was instantly gone.
Jennifer led the group through a beautiful meditation, followed by a walking meditation throughout the space noticing, observing, and reflecting on the works of Rina’s work ending with time for journaling and sharing something that we were all grateful for.
If you have never been to PAFA I highly suggest planning a visit and enjoying some time with amazing art.
