The MUSEA Intentional Creativity MUSEUM was founded by artist Shiloh Sophia in 2000. We are a living Museum with a virtual gallery and physical galleries around the world through our Musea Global Centers. Together we curate artists, rotating shows, studios and exhibits. Our focus is art made with Intention, Contemporary Symbolism, Storytelling, and art gatherings.
Musea has served up to 15,000 students per month, certified over 450 leaders, and continues to grow its online community called the Red Thread Cafe Classroom. Serving nearly 9,000 women creatives through providing a private container where women are free to share their creative works in progress, ask for witnessing and lift each other up. Musea also offers monthly virtual Red Thread Circles via Zoom that reach thousands of women a month, forging connections near and far.
The Museum is rooted in the Intentional Creativity movement which is a method of making art with mindfulness and intention at its center. This method has been passed down through a matriarchical lineage of founder, Shiloh Sophia’s family. The philosophies of Intentional Creativity inform Musea as a collective and our various projects and platforms. It is also the inspiration that led to the creation of this our Musea Museum as well as the School of Intentional Creativity.
This museum exists in many places and many spaces. Our headquarters are located in Sonoma California as well as in this virtual space. We are also proud to collaborate with artists who have trained in the Intentional Creativity method in joining their studios or museums with our movement. With hundreds of certified Intentional Creativity Teachers across the globe and many opening their own Musea Global Centers for teaching Intentional Creativity, the possibilities are expansive. These Intentional Creativity Teachers form a constellation of museums that link our movement across our planet.
During a time of intersecting global challenges and social transformation, this is also a way of responding as artists and engaging in our own powerful forms of activism – activism rooted in love, acknowledging each person’s right to be self-expressed, uplifting women creatives as essential to Art (inclusive of women of color and culture), and amplifying the reach of Intentional Creativity and its powerful capacity to bring healing. This is not your average Museum! This is the emergent, ubiquitous container for one of the most powerful Art Movements on the planet!
