for a reception, live musical performance, and artist’s talk
featuring visual artist Nancy Griffin and composer Dr. Sherry Woods.
Connections, an interactive exhibit for children and families, explores the intersection of Visual Art and Music inspired by regional plants and local history.
Learn about the Pee Dee region through a large, sixteen-panel work of visual art created by artist, Nancy Griffin. This work is designed to create one overall composition that can be rearranged to shift the larger image. These visual ideas are similarly reflected in a musical composition by composer Dr. Sherry Woods, made of sixteen short individual works, combined to create a different whole composition as the parts are rearranged.
Children and families will have the opportunity to play historic musical compositions on the Museum’s wall xylophone and dig deeper with a Museum Explorer backpack filled with activities to engage with local history and regional plant life throughout the museum.
