Art-o-mancy turns the art museum into your personal oracle. We invite you to experience it for yourself on Thursday, May 21 at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts from 5:30-9:00pm. Art-o-mancy is a multi-sensory mode of interaction with artworks and artifacts that turns the entire museum into a giant Tarot deck. When you play it with the Art-o-mancy team of Oracle Guides, you’ll close your eyes and let yourself be directed by your intuition (with your Guide keeping you safe) to a work of art that suggests an answer to even the deepest questions about your life. Play with a group of your fellow FSIM members who will share their insights about you.
LAURIE PHILLIPS, a founder of Art-o-mancy, makes art that asks the question, "what's it like to be you?" Her latest project is a story-portrait book about four family members who experienced the suicide of their husband/father, "The Suicide Survivors' Club." Laurie also works as a stress relief coach for women who feel overwhelmed by their job, their health or their relationships. She’s a national workshop leader for institutions like Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Gilda’s Club Cancer Resource Center, and Struthers Parkinson’s Center.
