“This is the experience we want to bring to the Gallery of Echoes project:
Imagine if you stopped to look at a painting, it unfolds in front of you, moving through space to cover every inch of your vision. A curator’s voice begins to whisper in your ear, telling the story of the piece. Music transforms the brush strokes into melodies and harmonies that become the painting’s soundtrack. And nearby, inspired performers experience the work through dance, song, and spoken word.
Art that inspires art that inspires art. That’s what we hope to achieve in Gallery of Echoes.”

“Last spring, Shadowbox Live presented an innovative collaboration with the Columbus Museum of Art–an evocative, multimedia performance centered around 21 individual works of art from the museum’s permanent collection. The risky collaboration paid off with Shadowbox receiving a coveted award from the Greater Columbus Arts Council last month and plans to possibly expand the show nationwide. The group is reviving this one-of-a-kind show this November and we met up with them during rehearsals”

"...after being immersed in the sights and sounds of the collaboration called Gallery of Echoes, I will slow my pace and take in a deeper appreciation for their collection. And I will never look at the Columbus Museum of Art the same way again."
"We need more of this—theater appreciating the other art forms and uniting them into an experience only a theater can do. Not just in Columbus, but in the rest of the world as well. Hopefully, Gallery of Echoes can find new life because, seriously, seven performances is nowhere near enough."
"Seriously, no matter how impressed you are by the show in general, you can’t help being blown away by the music. Shadowbox has thrown original numbers into its shows from time to time, but these pieces are in a class by themselves. The best ones complement their respective artworks perfectly, and all are flawlessly performed"
"What video designer David Whitehouse and his Shadowbox video team have accomplished on screen is truly amazing. Ryan Newell shot the gliding, soaring, penetrating video footage of each art work, with video editors Harold Chadwick, Rasen Davonte Johnson and Zach Tarantelli working with Whitehouse to achieve what often feels like magic.
