Cottonwood Center for the Arts, 427 E Colorado Ave., Colorado Springs, 80903
Cottonwood Center for the Arts is pleased to present a juried show for the month of October, composed of the works of artists of all mediums from across the Pikes Peak region and beyond.
Chromesthesia is a form of synesthesia where sound causes a person to experience color, shape, and movement, in addition to the emotional reactions we have to music. Cottonwood Center for the Arts has invited artists to create and share their own interpretation of Chromesthesia, based around these musical works: Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt OR Scheherazade, Op. 35: I. The Sea and Sinbad’s Ship by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The two composers were known to disagree about which colors matched musical keys.
We invite you to come experience these musical pieces through the lens of the visual artist this coming First Friday from 5-8pm, and through the end of October during normal business hours.
