Composed of intricate ink and acrylic drawings on canvas that cover the café walls, One Day, After the Rain follows the movement of sunrise to nightfall, paying homage to Arthur Dove’s landscapes in The Phillips Collection. Sandra Cinto creates dreamlike environments with her art. “I am interested in passages of time marked by sun and moon, day and night, and the movement of water,” she says. “I chose the language of drawing because of its immediacy and direct character. My intention is to propose an immersive experience through color and form.”


Intersections is a new series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises. 

Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum's galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations.
