- Edmonia Lewis presented The Death of Cleopatra, a two-ton marble sculpture for the 1886 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition where it was described as "[being] produced by a sculptor of genuine endowments." The People’s Advocate, an African-American run newspaper, boasted that Lewis’s statue got more views than any of the other 673 works in the Exhibition, you could say it went viral. The post-Exhibition life of Cleopatra gets a little rocky, though. Too tired to carry a two-ton marble corpse back to Rome, Lewis placed it in a storage facility in Chicago. Somehow, it made its way to a saloon in 1892 and then into the hands of a notorious gambler and racehorse tycoon named “Blind John” Condon, who used it as the gravestone for his favorite horse, Cleopatra. When the racetrack turned into a USPS service facility in the 1970s, Cleopatra traveled to a storage yard, where a fire inspector and his son’s Boy Scout troop rescued it. Before leaving it in a shopping mall storage closet. A biographer working on Edmonia Lewis’s life story sent out a query for Lewis’s last known sculpture and, after visiting Cleopatra in a local shopping mall, knew she’d found it. . . . . . . . . #edmonialewis #5womenartists #blackgirlmagic #cleopatra #egypt #queen #smithsonian #americanartmuseum #saam #arthistory #historiadelarte #kunstgeschichte #storiadellarte #historyofart #museumlovers #culturegram #instamuseum #art #arte #kunst #artlovers #artnerd #sculpture #sculptor #artoftheday #instaart #creative #artist #painting #artmuseum

- ["Inner Quiet" 24x24, available] When I was in college, my roommate, Olivia, and I got invited by some guys to listen to their band. We went, but the concert was in a tiny house. The small space plus their multiple amps meant that even as cute as we thought they were, our eardrums couldn't take it for very long. We went outside, found a place to sit and appreciated the inky blue sky and brilliant stars instead. Olivia said, "The older I get, the more I appreciate the quiet." They were such wise words and struck something I didn't even realize I felt. My soul has only agreed more as time goes on. There are times now when the world or facebook or people's opinions or anger get too noisy for me and I pull back into that quiet space inside of me where I feel peace. Let them be loud. Let them shout out until their face is flush. My solace is my fortress and I can't hear their noise in here.​
