Alquimia del Alma, Elixir para los Espiritus-M.M. Campos-Pons

This exhibit took my breath away! Let me explain. I have spent most of my life thinking about (academically and informally) and looking at (in-person and in photographs) Arroyo's sugar cane fields and the Lafayette central azucarera (sugar mill). Arroyo's sugar fields and the central live within me at a cellular level. And so, when I walked into this exhibit and saw María MagdalenaCampos-Pons's rendition of the sugar mill I was just moved beyond words. I was in awe at the eloquent way in which Campos-Pons' re-imagined and rendered this most intrinsic Caribbean coastal reality.
