On Another Note: The Intersection of Art and Music | December 2 – March 11

Music has become a constant companion to our daily lives. There is no escaping it. In elevators, in waiting rooms, in restaurants, and through our ear buds, our lives are lived with a sound track as background noise. Visual artists are no different than the rest of us as it is not unusual for them to have music playing in their studios as they create, but some artists have embraced the challenge of making it the core of their creative process by turning the music into visual manifestations. Through the artists’ explorations, On Another Note: The Intersection of Art and Music hopes to broaden the viewer’s perception of how music can inspire the making of art as well as to open them to the vast variety of ways in which it can be made visual.

About Lyman Allyn Art Museum

The Lyman Allyn Art Museum welcomes visitors from New London, Southeastern Connecticut and from all over the world. Established by a gift from Harriet Allyn in memory of her seafaring father, the museum opened the doors of its beautiful neo-classical building in 1932. Today it houses a fascinating collection of over 17,000 objects from ancient times to the present; artworks from Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Europe, with particularly strong collections of American paintings, decorative arts, and Victorian toys and doll houses.

Complementing the eye-opening “American Perspectives” galleries, which display works drawn from the permanent collection, the Lyman Allyn presents a number of changing exhibitions each year. These special shows highlight creativity in its fullest definition – encouraging visitors to experience the pleasures of art through many lenses of discovery, history, social, and cultural phenomenon with focus on the character and strengths of Southeastern Connecticut. Throughout each year, the Lyman Allyn Art Museum offers special programming including exhibition openings, lectures, educational opportunities, and musical events for families and the general public.
