The Sacred Groves and the New Sacred Art Movement go global through Google Arts and Culture: The Site is ‘Live” from Thursday, October 20th, 2022!
From Thursday, October 20th, the world will have access to more than 20 stories created by the Adunni Olorisha Trust- Adunni Osun Foundation!! Powered by the amazing Google Arts and Culture site and using more than 900 archival and contemporary photographs and videos, the AOTF has created stories about each of the major Shrines, the artists of the New Sacred Art Movement and the talented next generation of artists and artisans who are continuing in their footsteps! We give the viewer immersive experiences through 360 virtual tours and animations of the Shrines created by our partner, CyArk. We introduce the original artists including Adebisi Akanji, Rabiu Abesu and Sangodare Ajala. You will meet Priestess Doyin Faniyi, experience the Osun Festival and learn about the incredible next generation of restoration artists who are keeping the traditions alive. We thank Google Arts and Culture for this opportunity to open the eyes of the world to the remarkable Osun Osogbo Groves, to the artists who honoured and protected them and to the next generation who is maintaining them.
