The Berkshire Edge:
Mass MoCA to celebrate ‘Come to Your Senses ‘ exhibit with all-star concert
North Adams — MASS MoCA will celebrate the opening of its Kidspace “Come to Your Senses” exhibition Saturday, June 23, at 7 p.m. in a concert featuring acoustic performances from musical greats including the legendary Carly Simon with her family Ben Taylor and Sophie Hiller; exhibition curator Sally Taylor, daughter of Simon and James Taylor; R&B artist Kori Withers, daughter of Bill Withers; blues guitarist Eric Erdman; hip-hop artist and producer John Forte, formerly of the Fugees; and a dance performance by Alison Manning and Jesse Keller of the Yard.
“Come to Your Senses: Art to See, Smell, Hear, Taste, and Touch” asks visual artists, poets, dancers, musicians, perfumers and chefs to use one another’s art as prompts to create their own work. For the first time since the founding of Sally Taylor’s Consenses nonprofit arts organization, young student artists from local elementary schools catalyze the interpretive chains with paintings reflecting on the topics of joy and fear. The resulting 55 works across all media combine to create a multisensory experience in which visitors can trace the transformation of joy and fear as it travels through multiple artists and mediums.
Tickets are $35–$75. All ticket proceeds from the evening will benefit arts education at MASS MoCA. For tickets and more information, see the Berkshire Edge calendar or contact MASS MoCA at (413) 662-2111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
