Modest Mussorgsky composed Pictures from an Exhibition as a musical depiction of a set of drawings and watercolors. This piece, famously arranged for orchestra by Maurice Ravel, leads the audience members on a sonic gallery walk and invites them to investigate how visual imagery can be transformed into sound. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

An exhibition of visual artworks by students from Chicago Public Schools will be displayed in the Rotunda.
