Dear Art Educators,

Some of you may be interested in this pdf file - Painting Music -
Rhythm and Movement in Art:
Has several artists and works inspired by music. Nebraska exhibition
featuring 23 original paintings and fine-art printmaking including
work by well-known artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee,
Stuart Davis, and Joseph Albers.

"Painting Music: Rhythm and Movement in Art is about the many ways
artists have emulated music using techniques such as color, form,
repetition, layering and lyricism. It also exemplifies how music has
influenced and inspired art and art making. As many ways as there are
to explore the music and art connection, what is actually being seen
and what is heard is up to the individual. What do you hear: a
symphony, a ballad, the blues or jazz? Perhaps you hear only noise or
silence between the notes. However you experience it, we hope you
will enjoy the performance." - Sharon L. Kennedy, Curator
