2020 Exhibition – Art Inspired by Music / Calls & Submissions
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.
