On the second floor of the museum's 1414 Monterey Street galleries, you’ll find Kathleen’s drawings that were created while listening to theremin music. A theremin is a type of electronic instrument that creates sound depending on how close you are to the antennae on the instrument. While listening to this music she responded to the vibrating quality of the sound with her body and arm movements, creating the drawings you see here.
In ARTLab, we’ll have a real theremin set up for visitors to play with, and visitors can use paint brushes and wear blindfolds and create drawings in response to the sounds of the theremin. Through this process, visitors will be able to get in touch with their body and senses and create something spontaneous and unique.
See you there!
