About the Event

Theme:  Songs That Make Us Move

"Songs That Make Us Move, explores the ways music, sound, and noise permeate our daily lives to elicit deep, personal emotions in us all that can inspire new modes of expression. From the faint rustle of a fallen leaf crushed under a shoe to the melodic melodies of a songstress singing the blues, music has the power to move us in ways that are often best articulated through art.  The artists included in this exhibition found courage, meditation, and strength from personally selected pieces of music and poems to illustrate how they celebrate life, ruminate on loss, and move to the groove."

Martina Dodd, Exhibition Juror
