This summer a beatboxer, spoken word artist, electronic musician, percussionist, and vocalist will turn the galleries at the Walters into dynamic spaces with music, sound, art, and insightful commentary by museum experts. A new way to experience the museum on Thursday Nights! Open until 9 p.m. The second concert in the ART/SOUND/NOW series features the percussion of Eric Derr and the beatboxing of Max Bent. Mr. Derr will be joined by Susan Wager, Mellon Curatorial Postdoctoral Fellow at the Walters, for a guided tour of the Museum’s 18th-century gallery, where works by painter Giovanni Tiepolo and composer Carolyn Chen will spur a conversation about time and space. Mr. Bent, who will create original compositions based on chants in early music, will be joined by medieval art curator Martina Bagnoli to explore the ideas of awe and mystery within the Walters' collection of medieval art. Ticket holders will enjoy a private bar, a complimentary drink voucher, and exclusive access to the Museum’s third-floor galleries during this evening of intimate conversation and exciting music. This performance is part of a three part summer music series. Receive a $10 discount to all three performances if you register for the series:
