A couple weeks ago, my husband and I went to the opening at the Madden Museum of Art Inspired by Art: The Building of a Legacy which showcases art collected by John and Marjorie Madden over the last 50 years.
John Madden is a real estate developer and one of his company’s creations is the Greenwood Plaza business park, which combines beautiful architechture, landscape, and sculptures.
This is part of a permanent collection at the museum. It was interesting to see the variety of art they collected.
There were 19th century Italian paintings, a Robert Rauschenberg painting, watercolors by Chen Chi, hyper realistic still lifes by Daniel Sprick, and a variety of sculptures.
The museum also hosts a variety of exhibits throughout the year.
The museum is in the Palazzo Verdi building in Greenwood Village, with a beautiful elaborate 48 foot chandelier, above hand carved labyrinth in the floor, and huge windows showcasing the ever changing Colorado sky.
It is a great place to stop by and enjoy the art. Their mission is to make art accessible, especially to the Denver Tech Center and Greenwood Village area.
If you are in the area, stop by for a visit.
It seems we are obsessed with more. Do more. Have more. Produce more.
I find myself easily lured into this way of thinking, especially with business.
While it does make sense, and may be the best way to measure financial success, it leaves me feeling unsatisfied.
If I were just creating widgets rather than handmade jewelry and art, I would say more was better.
Instead, I want to slow down, make less and enjoy it even more.
I want to keep the connection between what inspired me to create something, my hands
and my heart, and the ultimate goal of sharing that with someone else.
I believe the joy of making the piece ultimately comes through.
I will lose track of time and not be ruled by it. I won’t have more time but a
better quality of my time spent pursuing the delight of making something beautiful.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.” Mohandas Gandhi
I’ve been setting some things in place and this program looks like it is right in line with my philosophy of enjoying success in business and your life, not sacrificing one for the other.
I look forward to having some support and more strategies on how to do this.
