Community Art Share – Week of April 5

While social interaction is on hold, the Sinfonia is trying something outside of the box (for us anyway) — we are mixing the musical, visual, and virtual in a community art share.

At noon on 4/5 and 4/12, a mini-concert will be posted. It will remain up until the following Saturday at noon, and you, as artists and listeners are encouraged to create a companion art piece inspired by the music you are listening to.

Maybe you do a watercolor, crayon doodle, or collage. Maybe you write a poem, throw pottery, make chalk art, or do hair…any creative expression is welcome. Participants can then submit their piece along with a short description to be voted on for “people’s choice” winners via Facebook.

Participation is encouraged anytime during the art share timeframe with voting taking place the following week. We envision a “rolling art experience” where one week’s participation leads to the next. Winners receive public acknowledgment and appreciation (anonymity is okay too) , a Sinfonia prize package, and a sense of belonging and community togetherness.
