A Full-blooded Woman Dreaming, With the Power Just to Be

Leonard Cohen & Unified Heart 2013

Unified Heart 2013 Opens This Weekend

Unified Heart 2013 Profile Pick

Hosted by Morgana Nagorski, this exhibition celebrates the beauty and genuis of Leonard Cohen’s words.  The event will be held at Unified Heart @ Palais Orleans.   Incredibly talented friend and artist Callipygian Christensen will participate and has graciously shared one of her interpretations of  a Leonard Cohen lyric for this post.  Calli chose Mr. Cohen’s song “The Letters” to create this beautiful piece:

by artist Calli Christensen

Cohen’s lyrics:  ” I said there’d been a flood. I said there’s nothing left. I hoped that you would come. I gave you my address.”

(Click on the image and check out Calli’s flickr photostream for additional wonderful interpretations.)

I’m uber excited to see this exhibit.  I’m a fairly recent Leonard Cohen fan, having learned about him only recently (through Calli, who is also a wonderful DJ and features many Leonard Cohen pieces during her sets).  Cohen’s artistry as subject matter is beyond alluring and the inworld artists taking on this challenge so talented that Unified Heart 2013 is sure to experience a repeat in soaring popularity…a powerful, powerful exhibit indeed.

Event Details:

Arrive early and stay late at one or both of the opening receptions:    6:00 – 8:00 PM SLT, Saturday 26 January or 10:00AM – 12:00PM SLT, Sunday 27 January.   Before that time wet your appetite by clicking through to Calli’s flickr photostream or to the photostream of any of the artists and take in their early interpretations for this exhibit.
