Serenbe is a place where connections between people, nature, and the arts are nourished. Here, we believe that art has the power to shift perspectives and open both hearts and minds. On today’s episode of Serenbe Stories, we are speaking with arts writer and Serenbe resident Gail O’ Neill and artist Curtis Patterson about Curtis’ new permanent installation in Serenbe, Serenity for Shango. This gorgeous piece sits near the entrance to Serenbe and was designed to pay homage to the lineage of African American culture. In this episode, we chat with Gail and Curtis about their backgrounds in the arts, the meaning behind Curtis’ new piece, and why visual art is such an enduring and powerful medium.
