Yellow Barn’s 2021 Summer Artwork

Imaginary Lectures by Ann Glazer (2019 Artist in Residence), a series of six chalk drawings with words collected from rehearsals and performances at Yellow Barn View larger
"The magic of Yellow Barn concerts tells only part of Yellow Barn’s story. The weeks of interactions between musicians, composers, faculty and students are heard but not disclosed in the performances.  Though revealing a magician's mechanics can destroy the illusion, bearing witness to the exchange of ideas and inspirations at Yellow Barn only makes the music more meaningful."—Ann Glazer
For the duration of our 2019 Summer Festival, artist Ann Glazer was in residence, attending Yellow Barn rehearsals and performances, meals and parties. After cleaning out a nearby barn, Ann upended our old percussion platforms, transforming them into chalkboards for her work. At the end of her residency, "Imaginary Lectures" emerged. Included in the drawings are words and phrases spoken by Yellow Barn musicians over the course of five weeks of rehearsals and performances.
