Big Arts in the Little Apple
May 1, 2020 – May 28, 2020
Fifth Floor – John & Susan Toussaint Student Artist Gallery
The Trout Museum of Art, Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra, and Appleton Area School District coordinate an annual community collaboration that explores the intersection of music and the visual arts. This year, we introduced elementary students (grades 2-6) to a selected piece of symphonic music, Firebird Suite, by Igor Stravinsky. Participating students listened to and learned about the music, then responded through the creation of their own visual artwork. The artwork was juried, displayed, and is now celebrated throughout the community. Juried pieces were featured at the April 25, 2020 Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra concert where students were invited to hear the Symphony perform the featured piece live at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. All submitted artwork is included in a celebration exhibition at a variety of locations across our community.
5th floor John & Susan Toussaint Student Artist Gallery is free to the public during museum hours.
