Sight of Music

September 29, 2017
9:00 am


Columbus Cultural Arts Center

139 W. Main St.

Framed by a nod to synesthesia, “The Sight of Music” exhibition will present visual arts representations of the aural arts that provide a lens through which to explore how we interact with music as a central aspect of our humanity. These works will examine music's place in everyday, cultural, creative, and imaginative contexts—its major figures and historical evolution; its range of instrumentation; its forms and styles of presentation, as well as the venues in which it is experienced; its well-known compositions and lyrics; its varied moods, tones and modalities; and the multiple ways in which we response to it. Sponsors for this exhibition include: Johnstone Fund for New Music, Ohio Alliance for Arts Education, Ohio Arts Council, Friends of the Cultural Arts Center, the City of Columbus, Columbus Symphony, and WCBE.
