Art of Elan is thrilled to return to Lux Art Institute for a beguiling one-hour musical program that draws inspiration from the work of resident artists Leo Chiachio & Daniel Giannone, whose innovative fabric and textile work allows them to “paint with needles.” Art of Elan’s ensemble-in-residence, the Kontras Quartet, will be featured on this colorful program, in addition to works for percussion and solo double bass. The pre-concert reception includes an opportunity to meet the resident artists and learn more about the visual works being created at Lux.
