I Want to Live Okay Because My Life is Important to Me by Michael Bernard Loggins © 1985 Creativity Explored Licensing, LLC.

A sampling of Michael Bernard Loggins' archives was selected by contemporary artist and curator Chris Johanson to be included in The Craft & Folk Art Museum's Artifacts of a Life Lived by the Living (To Live) exhibitionThis interdisciplinary exhibition celebrates the meditative ritual of the artmaking process for a group of artists who are compelled to create art to sustain a certain balance and order in their lives. Johanson has selected a group of artists that he deeply admires, whose works include drawings, painting, site-specific installations, sound, performance, and movement.

Johanson chose this selection of artists, whom he considers “beautiful people in the sea of life,” based on their intriguing stories—individuals “who create with intention to be in rhythm with the world,” he adds. Each artwork serves as a document of the energy these artists use to make their lives livable. His intention is to share the idea that making magic often involves a creative balancing act or meditative ritual that creates a space for personal peace.

Featured artists are Alex Cohen, Alicia McCarthy, Carmen Papalia, John Ratliff (Swan), Justin “Kutmah” McNulty, Kal Spelletich, Kim MacConnel, Liz Harris, Michael Bernard Loggins, and Sue Tompkins.
