– About the Exhibit –

Musea Intentional Creativity Museum is honored to host the Red Madonna- In Her Embrace Group Exhibit. The Exhibit will open on May 18, 2022 with a LIVE Virtual Museum Show at 4 pm PT.

The Red Madonna – In Her Embrace Group Exhibit features artwork from over 10 years of paintings in the Red Madonna Sisterhood Community. Red Madonna was founded by MUSEA Co-Founder, Shiloh Sophia and her mother Caron McCloud. This particular aspect of our Intentional Creativity community is designed for those who are seeking and exploring the Divine Feminine in their lives and in their creative spiritual practice. During the Opening, we will hear from Red Madonna Leadership including Havi Mandell, Mary Ann Matthys, Anasuya Isaacs, and of course Shiloh Sophia.

The Red Madonna Sisterhood is a community that is woven within the MUSEA Intentional Creativity School and Museum. We are a  gathering of women throughout the world joining together to explore the sacred relationship with Creator and Creation inherent in a devoted practice of Intentional Creativity.  Red Madonna is a sanctuary for celebration, creativity, and play framed through the Sacred Feminine Archetype. Gatherings have been both virtual and physical. The framework of, “The Red Madonna,” is an archetypal approach to the Divine Feminine that was originally inspired by the Virgin Guadalupe who figured largely in the art and life of Shiloh Sophia. She describes it as, “The Red Madonna is She Who Appears in your Heart and on your Path”…

The Divine Mother in her many forms has appeared all over the world for tens of thousands of years and the practices within the group are intended for exploring sacred connection, personal awakening, and transformation.  We create a heart-centered opening to the healing wisdom of the Divine Feminine.  Group members share in common devotional practices such as prayer, poetry, painting, sabbath ritual, circle, and tracking of the phases of the moon through the delivery of Intentional Creativity teachings. This group has gathered every moon since December 2011 focusing on different themes and frameworks. Special attention has also been given to cherishing, embodying, and honoring the elders of the sisterhood. Our 2022 theme is the Forest of Grandmothers. 

We believe that our global community of over 10,000 women is threaded through with thousands of Grandmothers and Matriarchal women. We at Musea seek to create a sanctuary to honor and uplift the voices and images of our Elder’s present and Ancestors’ past. Let us honor the voice of the women in the Forest of Grandmothers, an imagined sanctuary, a red tent both ancient and futuristic that makes a sacred space for our mother tongue to be revealed. Let us gather at the hem of her garment as we have since Red Madonna began.” ~ Rev. Shiloh Sophia
