Color + Sound

Color + Sound

Presented by Shelby County Arts Council at Shelby County Arts Council

The idea for this art exhibit came to life after curator and artist Lindsay Dyess listened to Crenshaw’s album, Color + Sound. She wanted to explore that idea further by creating a sensory-based art exhibit where people could explore art installations using multi-sensory stimuli to enhance their understanding of art. The exhibit is a modern art installation with an emphasis on accessibility to all people. This exhibit encourages people to touch, explore and immerse themselves in the installations to get a better understanding of the art form.

Each exhibiting artist has experience in different mediums which enhances the uniqueness of each installation. The artists were randomly assigned a different color to use within their work and artists were encouraged to use a variety of textures and items in their work that is interactive and could be inclusive to blind and deaf visitors. Gallery visitors are encouraged to touch, explore, walkthrough, sit under, and stand in the middle of-become part of the work. Art is not just for the sighted, it should be available and accessible for anyone to appreciate

“Sound is materially invisible but very visceral and emotive. It can define a space at the same time as it triggers a memory.”

-Susan Philipsz
