Happy Birthday to the Nasher Sculpture Center

Friday, October 18, 2013

For ten years our friends at the Nasher Sculpture Center have been doing work that enriches lives and fires the imagination. Exploring the Nasher, one is as likely to see the rapt attention of a group of school children as one is to share one of its rooms with the solitary admirer, but the community it serves is not limited by the walls of its galleries or its garden. The Nasher offers new ways of seeing the familiar and a context for discovering the unknown that has a lasting effect on how art makes us feel.

In the Nasher Sculpture Center and its Soundings concert series, Yellow Barn has found a kindred spirit with whom it can collaborate. We treasure our work together and wish you a happy 10th birthday!

The following program took place at the Nasher on April 26, 2013. The first set, "the rain is a handsome animal" was compiled and performed by Tin Hat (Carla Kihlstedt, violin and voice; Mark Orton, guitar and dobro; Ben Goldberg, clarinets; Rob Reich, accordion and piano), and is based on poems by E.E. Cummings. On the second half of the program pianist Gilbert Kalish performed Charles Ives's "Concord" sonata (with Conor Nelson, flute).
