Maria Chávez: String Room

April 8 through May 6, 2017
From the gallery:"In String Room, grand piano strings are tensioned from ceiling to floor, each aligned differently throughout the gallery. These configured strings allow the viewer to pluck the strings as they walk around the space. The room becomes an activated place where a viewer interacts with the instrument and depending on the number of participants at any given time, the room can become vibrant cacophony or a minimal soundscape."

A show of works by Austin-based artists Jason Eatherly and Dave Lowell. Both artists are known for their street art.
