Overview

Museums are often thought of as places that deal exclusively with objects, and we tend to forget that throughout human history the intangible arts—such as poetry, storytelling, music, and dance—have been valued as much if not more than material art forms.

Listening to Art—Seeing Music invites visitors on a journey of discovery that reveals the beautiful diversity and intellectual depth of intangible world art traditions in dialogue with material culture. Explore their organic interdependencies with poetry and music, and experience how the inherent power of their rhythmic soundscapes can paint images for the inner eye to behold. How does sound affect our visual perception and experience?

This interactive tour will help guide you through the experience, giving you the chance to collect poems, songs, behind-the-scenes goodies, and items to enable in your photos along the way!
