Experience how art and music overlap, connect and influence each other. See, touch and play music in the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery during the Sounds Like Art! exhibit May 25 – Aug 19.
Investigate how instruments work by examining the parts and pieces of a ukulele, flute and trumpet. It’s pretty amazing how all those pieces work together to make music. Wonder at the artwork inspired by music including art made from a trumpet.
Imagine your screaming fans as you play drums, keyboards and synthesizer on a digital app on iPads in the gallery. Bring a couple friends and you’ve got a band. You can also play a ukulele, a giant xylophone, horns and a lap harp in the gallery.
Every week we’ll have a different STREAM activity in the gallery.
