In Nov:Contemporary Magic- A Tarot Deck Art Project

Stacy Engman, Chair and Chief Curator of Contemporary Art at the National Arts Club brought together some of the most influential minds in art, fashion and design to individually design one tarot card and collaboratively create an entire deck.For this project, an interdisciplinary mix of today’s top creative icons have each interpreted a Tarot card using their own iconography. Each artist has been matched with a Tarot card based on archetypal themes that their work reference. The exhibition will be on view during the month of November 2010 at the National Arts Club.
