Gunpowder creates a beautiful piece of artwork!!!

Whether you love the arts or explosives, both come together Friday, December 11 at the East Terrace of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

No, they're not blowing up the museum, but international famed artist Cai Guo-Qiang will launch a flower -- made from gunpowder --into the skies of Philadelphia at around sunset.

The purpose of the explosion is to honour the memories of our cherished friends, neighbours and family members that have passed. Through the eruption, beauty will light up the sky, celebrating life and its gift to us all.

Known for his elaborate displays, Cai Guo-Qiang brings a new meaning to the word eccentric. This blast is part of Guo-Qiang’s Fallen Blossoms exhibit that will be on display through March at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

A series of gunpowder drawings, entitled Light Passage, will demonstrate time’s passing and the role that memory and memorials play in the past.

This is one of the most spectacular explosion that will illuminate the sky, but not for entertainment but to be seen with awe and amazement of what it really represents. Great work Cai!!!
