Tomah I (Myrna Loy Center Show): Genius Loci

[Label:] Against the cold mountains stands a Genius Loci, a spirit of place. Transformation of the self is a big theme in our self-centered society. But what about transformation of society, and even of the land itself? We see this transformation every day, of natural places into a commodity to be bought and sold, as commerce is the true god of our society. The land offers an alternative. Can we transform, can we heal, and provide new life to the land? The Genius Loci waits to transform us and to be transformed in turn, like the butterflies on his hat.
