The EAR|EYE Concert series begins its fifth year at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) with a concert Friday, Sept. 20, in the New Media Gallery. The concert series features students from Bowling Green State University’s (BGSU) College of Musical Arts doctoral program performing in TMA’s galleries.

BGSU students will perform music from composers Cathy Berberian, George Crumb, Caroline Lizotte, Witold Lutosawski, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Evan Williams in the exhibition "Everything is Rhythm": Mid-Century Art & Music.

"The EAR|EYE concert series inspired the exhibition "Everything is Rhythm" so it is fitting that we start this year’s series in the New Media Gallery," said Scott Boberg, TMA’s manager of programs and audience engagement.

"Everything is Rhythm," which runs through Feb. 23, 2020, brings music and art together as 14 visual art masterpieces are paired with carefully selected musical accompaniments.

"The purpose of the concert series is to engage visitors by prompting close looking, contemplation and consideration of the connection between visual and auditory forms," Boberg said. "While the exhibition has specific pairings, we look forward to enjoying the new selections from BGSU professor and co-creator of the series Dr. Marilyn Shrudeand and how her choices will refocus our experience with the works of art."

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

"Everything is Rhythm": Mid-Century Art & Music is sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council with additional support from 2019 Exhibition Program Sponsor ProMedica. Admission to the exhibition is free.
