CONTEMPORARY MAGIC: A TAROT DECK ART PROJECT

Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project

If you’re in New York City in November, be sure to get to The National Arts Club to see Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project.

Stacy Engman has curated a gorgeous art Tarot deck featuring original artwork from a diverse mix of the world’s top creative icons. The exhibition includes 78 original works, each representing a different Tarot card and each by a different artist.

The artists were matched with a particular card based on archetypal themes referenced in their work. They then used their own iconography to interpret their card. The results are spectacular.

Where can I get a deck?
