“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.”

Education Outreach Program
As part of the Gallery of Echoes project, we are offering three 45-minute matinee performances to Central Ohio high schools Monday May 5th, and Tuesday May 6th, 2014. Each matinee performance will take place between 9:00a-1:00p and will conclude with a talkback session with select performers and production staff.
To deepen the engagement, Eastmoor Academy and the Graham School have been selected to participate in the In-School Visitation Program. Shadowbox Live will go into the classrooms to discuss the project overall and to lead a discussion on the ODIP (Observe. Describe. Interpret. Prove) process for analyzing some of the art works in the project. We will then challenge the students to participate in the process used to create Gallery of Echoes. The students will receive two things:
1) An image of art (Picasso’s Guernica) – They will be asked to find some music they feel supports the “meaning” of the piece
2) A selection of music (Shadowbox Live’s original music presented in “7 Deadly Sins”) – They will be asked to find an image they feel supports the “meaning/feeling” of the piece.
The students will select one of the two to pursue and the most successful will be exhibited here on the website. Please visit the site soon for the results!
The educational component of Gallery of Echoes is made possible by PNC Arts Alive!

“I had never seen a Monet like this before. It was very dark. As I walked up to this piece, explored its colors, and compared it to what I know of Monet – all I could think about was the intense and deep emotion he was expressing. Though I believe Monet is actually inviting us, the viewers, to this safe place where we may comfortably share the darker parts of ourselves.” - from Bassist Gabriel Guyer

"...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.
