Creating Joy: Art Inspired by Music

Creating Joy: Art Inspired by Music

This Deadline Expired: Monday, March 30, 2020

From Friday May 1 to Sunday August 2, 2020 Susquehanna Art Museum will present Creating Joy, a juried exhibition in the Lobby Gallery and DeSoto Family Vault.

Sonic experience has long been a powerful influence on artistic expression. Practicing the visualization of music helped Modernist artists break free of traditional subject matter and begin to think abstractly. Artists such as Jackson Pollock and Robert Rauschenberg were directly inspired by the music they listened to in their studios, while musicians such as the Rolling Stones and Patti Smith collaborated with iconic artists to create art for their albums.

In a divisive contemporary world, music is one of the best ways to cultivate joy in our daily lives. Susquehanna Art Museum is interested in how you, as an artist, find joy at the intersection of music and art. Works selected for this exhibition will provide unique perspectives on the joyful relationship between music and art both visually and conceptually.

Her photographs of beach huts stem from an interest in mapping how architecture and social organization intersect, especially as it pertains to families and home.
