EAR|EYE Concert Series Continues at the Toledo Museum of Art

Eye On Art  |  10/31/2019 9:00 am

The EAR|EYE Concert continues its fifth year at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) with a free concert Friday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Levis Gallery. The concert series features students from Bowling Green State University’s (BGSU) College of Musical Arts doctoral program performing in TMA’s galleries with introductions by composer Marilyn Shrude.

BGSU students will perform music from composers Dan Coleman, George Crumb, Mark Engebretsen, Organ Matre and Ana Paola Santilliam Alcocer in the exhibition Global Conversation: Art in Dialogue, which has several new works for art on view since last year’s EAR|EYE performance including Man and World  by Viola Frey (1933-2004) and A Rainbow Like You  by Katherine Gra (born 1965).

“Recently, several new works of art have been added to Global Conversations: Art in Dialogue and the closing date for the exhibition has been extended, which prolongs the richness of this exhibition for making musical connections,” said Scott Boberg, TMA’s manager of programs and audience engagement. “Indeed, the purpose of the concert series is to engage visitors by prompting close looking and consideration of the connection between visual and auditory forms.”

EAR|EYE is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund.

Global Conversation: Art in Dialogue is sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council with additional support from 2019 Exhibition Program Sponsor ProMedica. Admission to the exhibition is free.
