Share your vision of Arcadia.

"May the day come-and perhaps soon-when I can flee to the woods on a South Sea island, and live there in ecstasy, in peace and for art."

~ Gauguin to his wife, Mette, February 1890


Yes let us find the peace and calm in Nature, and make an effort to find it.

This is a respite from the troubles of reality where there is no model for peace How ironic that such a place can flourish with conflict still a part of their community. No Arcadia.....how sad.

I really loved the exhibit! It was interesting to see all of the artist's Arcadia. I liked how they used different colors and techniques to depict their own visions. Very well done! :)

I came because my son wanted pictures on the steps of the museum. To my surprise this wonderful exhibit is here. Impressionistic art is my favorite period. I enjoyed the selection of pictures and the calm environment.

It offered a sense of calm. I wanted more. We step outside the museum and all gets busy and crazy again.

A magnificent collection, beautifully hung. What a summer treat! It's always amazing to see the connections and influences among the artists throughout history. Always amazed where the pieces are from and how many belong to PMA.Loved the audio and especially the music on 777. Wish there were a little more music along with some of the narratives. It sets the mood so well.So proud of PMA. Well done!

Beauty, serenity and peaceful sceneries, what a contrast to killing 12 people on the day of the release of the latest Batman movie ! Don't promote violence but peace and friendship. BAN GUNS EVERYWHERE !

virgil's vision of the wolf and sheep reconciled at last converses with the prophetic vision and imagery of messianic days.in jung's terms, we see hear a vision of the human heart, able to contain complementary opposites-- the Biblical injunction to love the Creator with all our hearts (plural!) bechol levavcha

Very cool! The different artists shown here was a great representation of the era in which they painted. Loved being to create my own Arcadia at the end of the exhibit.

Interesting selection of pieces... loved the way the artists intertwined with each other in influence, theory, and period. Coming to Arcadia was my birthday present and was well enjoyed! Thanks!
