⁣Just because the people and objects in a work of art don’t move doesn’t mean you can’t bring them to life with your imagination! 🙌⠀

Artwork 🖼️ can be a great source of inspiration to help you create your own dramatic scene or play 🎭, which you can then perform in front of an audience.⠀

At the Museum 🏛️, for example, actors from the The San Diego Shakespeare Society choose works from the #SDMAcollection, pair them with poems or short sections of plays, and then act those scenes out for our visitors. ⠀

You can see some of their videos here: https://bit.ly/30W58w1

⁣You're watching an original Virtual SDMA + Art of Elan performance! 🎺⠀

Watch and listen to UC San Diego Music Professor Stephanie Richards inspired by the optimism and feeling of joyful possibility that emanate from Dewain Valentine's "Circle, Blue-Violet." ⠀

"The musical headspace in which rising Brooklyn-via-Canada trumpeter Steph Richards operates stretches far beyond avant-garde jazz—an area she’s explored with visionaries such as Anthony Braxton, Henry Threadgill, and John Zorn—and into art-pop territory (she’s logged studio time with Yoko Ono and David Byrne too).” (JazzTimes). An adventurous #trumpeter, #conductor and #composer, Steph Richards is a radical innovator in the avant and experimental scenes and is driven by a curiosity how listeners interact with music and what sensory variables are open to experimentation. ⠀

#VirtualSDMA+ #ArtofElan is a series of online experiences pairing the #SDMAcollection with the thoughtfully curated #music of Art of Elan. The short musical responses are meant to inspire and uplift the community.⠀

Featured: DeWain Valentine. "Circle, Blue-Violet," 1978. Polyester resin. Museum purchase with funds from the Docent Committee, the Gilbert Fund and the Severance Fund. 1983.10.⠀

⁣This 16th-century detached folio illustrates scenes from one of five surviving (though incomplete & dispersed) manuscripts of the #Chandayan, or “Story of Chanda,” an ancient tale of the romance between Princess #Chanda and the warrior-hero Laurak. ⠀

Both the illustrations in this manuscript & the nature of the text itself make this work a genuine amalgam of diverse cultural traditions. Based on an Indic folktale, the Chandayan was composed by the Muslim Sufi poet Maulana Da‘ud in northern India in 1379–80 CE, when Islamic sultanates reigned over much of the subcontinent. Early in the story, Princess Chanda’s beauty attracts the desire of the malevolent Rao Rupchand, who besieges the city of Chanda’s father, Rao Mihr, with his formidable army.

Divided into three horizontal registers, the upper scene in the painting may illustrate a moment before the siege, where Rao Mihr’s emissaries report on Rupchand’s war-like intentions. In the ensuing battle, Rao Mihr enlists the help of the hero Laurak, who leads Mihr’s army to victory. After the battle, Laurak meets & falls in love with Chanda; when their affair is discovered, they must elope.

The painting combines Persianate elements, such as a more subdued palette, the vertical orientation of the page, and the style in which the horses have been rendered in the lowest register, with Indic ones, including the representation of figures in profile, the sharp angles formed by gesticulating arms, & the partitioning of pictorial space into registers. Such artistic synthesis is also evident in the Chandayan as a written text derived from Indic oral tradition, composed in the poet’s local language of Hindavi, & written in Arabic script, the same script used for Persian at this time. Blending Indic & Persianate poetic conventions, the Chandayan is the earliest extant Hindavi composition. As an allegorical romance, it is considered the first example of this genre of Indo-Persian Sufi literature, wherein the romantic journey of the lovers metaphorically alludes to the Sufi’s own journey in search of tawhid, or union with God.⠀

Featured: "Page from a dispersed illustrated manuscript of the Chandayan (Story of Chanda)," Mughal India, 16th century. Ink, opaque watercolor, and gold on paper. 25.6 x 19.6 cm. Edwin Binney 3rd Collection, 1990.257

Thank you so much for this email! It expresses so well what I want to shout to the rooftops. I do plan to post it on my own page, and I added it to a conversation going just now on Next Door (identifying it of course as coming from you)

Last March I was in San Diego on a bus tour and spent several hours in Balbo Park. As I love Art, one of my first stops was at the San Diego Art Museum. I came just a little bit after 11 a.m. and was very upset that a free tour already started. But as it turned out it did not start at all as no people came. I asked a person close to the ad for a free tour and he told that I was only one interested in the tour, that we could start late and that I could choose any topic for a tour. I did not have much time and asked for highlights of the collection. I love art and try to go to an Art Museum in every city I visit. I heard lots of lectures and had many tours in different US cities and abroad but never better one than at San Diego Art Museum. The docent Ray Menedus (I hope I remember his name correctly) was both highly knowledgeable and engaging. When we started, I was the only one person in the group. When we finished, we had 6 people from my bus tour and they all were equally impressed with the tour guide. Because of Ray Menedus I will always remember San Diego Art Museum with only one disappointment that I did not have enough time to enjoy the collection and would not be able to participate in his other tours and/or lectures. I would like to say from me and people from my bus tour group my deepest thank you to Ray Menedus for the wonderful tour of the collection highlights. Galina Kogel
