Fuller to Emerson: “You are intellect, I am life!”
Two signature works on the wall introducing Woman in the 21st Century: Margaret Fuller and the Sacred Marriage” upon entering Pierre Ménard Gallery: Margaret Fuller – Muse for ‘Woman in the 21st Century‘ (upper left) and Mask of Persephone, by Suzanne Benton, who performed in the HP Garcia version of the exhibition.
“What I mean by the Muse is that unimpeded clearness of the intuitive powers,which a perfectly truthful adherence to every admonition of the higher instincts would bring to a finely organized human being.”
— Margaret Fuller
More than Muse, Margaret Fuller was Minerva guiding my hand throughout the process of selecting works and mounting the Woman in the 21st Century: Margaret Fuller and the Sacred Marriage exhibition at Pierre Ménard Gallery in Fuller’s hometown of Cambridge, MA.
Her spirit was invoked in a ritual conduced at the start of her 200th birthday on May 23, 2010 and raised the vibration of the celebration which brought together scholars and Unitarian Universalists with revolutionary poets, reverends, academics, cutting edge artists and dealers.
