September 29 - November 5

  • Sumo

Framed by a nod to synesthesia, the “Sight of Music” exhibition will present visual arts representations of the aural arts that providea 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 ofpresentation, 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. The exhibition jurors – Dr. Melanie Corn, Columbus College of Art and Design President, and WOSU-FM Classical Music host, Dr. Christopher Purdy – selected works to befeatured in the show. Sight of Music will be on view Sept. 29 – Nov. 4 and is guest curated by Columbus State Community College Distinguished Professor Emeritus and poet Steve Abbott. Opening reception will be Friday, September 29th from 6-8 pm! 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.
