The Art of Music


The Art of Music

San Diego Museum of Art
1450 El Prado
Balboa Park, San Diego, CA

Now through February 07, 2016

The Art of Music presents a multifaceted and culturally diverse exploration of the intersection between music and art.  This exhibition celebrates the centennial of Balboa Park, home of the San Diego Museum of Art, paying tribute to the daily musical performances held in the park during the yearlong 1915 Panama–California Exposition. Throughout history and around the globe, music has been a source of inspiration for visual art in a wide variety of ways. The Art of Music highlights the complex relationships between these prominent and intertwining branches of creative expression, combining works from the Museum’s permanent collection with loans from major museum and private collections. Included in the exhibition are works of art by Pablo Picasso, Chuck Close, Rufino Tamayo, and Henri Matisse. Altogether, the exhibition includes over 200 works of art including paintings, sculptures, textiles, and examples of contemporary video, installation, and sound art, and musical instruments.
