San Rafael, CA (04/18/2017) – “The purpose of art is washing the daily dust of life off our souls.” ~ Pablo Picasso.

A handful of intrepid explorers from WindChime of Marin took advantage of a break in the rain to travel to the Marin Center to see an exhibit of local artist Tom Killion’s work. According to the Marin Center’s page, “Killion grew up in Marin County on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, where the rugged scenery inspired him from an early age to create landscape prints strongly influenced by traditional Japanese woodblock prints. This special exhibit honors Killion as the 2017 Cultural Treasure Award winner with 25 iconic works of Mt. Tamalpais, Mill Valley, the Golden Gate Bridge and more Marin landscapes.”

On the way home, we took “the road less traveled,” via Lucas Valley past Big Rock, out to Nicasio, on to the San Geronimo Valley, then in to Fairfax, San Anselmo, and back home to Kentfield.

Our weekly outings are part of the Vibrant Life® Program at WindChime of Marin, where we strive to combine feelings, imagination and thought and help feed the soul. We encourage family members to meet us on our outings, too! Come along and #BEINSPIRED!
