Think about your favorite work of art. Now think about what its “soundtrack” would be. It could be obvious, or it could be personal. It could be serious, or it could be funny. It could be descriptive, or it could be way out there. The possibilities are endless. The education department has been busy creating “soundtracks” for 51 works of art at the Museum. We have paired short audio clips with works of art that will challenge visitors to look in a very different way. Sound Track is one of several experiences that will be available to visitors when the new gallery debuts in April.
Here’s a sneak peek. Take a look at Guido Reni’s Madonna and Child…and while you look, click on the audio player below.
A fresh perspective, perhaps, and an invitation to look again in a new way: it’s a new approach to go along with the new building.
Update: You can now download the complete Sound Track Experience (as well as the complete Cell Phone Tour) directly from the Plan Your Visit section of the Museum site!
