The Foundation Gallery is thrilled to present Hallowed Harmonies: Divining the Sublime in collaboration with Monica Rose Kelly, Yolonda Ross, and Make Music Nola. As we near Jazzfest there is a heightened celebration of the pulse and the fundamental power that music brings to this city and so many of its people. Artists, musicians, and revelers alike bask in the visceral and, at times spiritual, nature of the sounds and vibrations that move through this city every day. While the work in Hallowed Harmonies is not always explicitly music-related, it is an exploration of “Creation, Energy, and Life” as Yolonda puts it.
Make Music NOLA’s (MMN) mission is to foster academic achievement, cultivate artistic expression, and promote the healthy growth and development of children in New Orleans through culturally relevant music instruction and performance.
As this is a one month show we will be merging the opening reception with the Arts and Activism Fundraiser. Make Music Nola’s incredible student musician’s will be performing during our opening celebration on April 28th. 100% of all donations at the door and 25% of all sales in the gallery and shop will benefit Make Music Nola!
