Music of Many Lands
In conjunction with Generations: Betty Feves, the Museum of Contemporary Craft presents a concert of classical music and new music composed in tribute to Betty Feves on Friday, July 27. This original performance remembers her not only as a visual artist but as a violinist, community activist, teacher, and mentor. Features violinist/composers Mark Menzies, Andrew McIntosh, and Melinda Rice. Organized by Julie Feves.
Music was as vital a foundation in Betty Feves’ upbringing as was art. She began music lessons at the age of six and studied classical violin all throughout high school. In some of her early sculptures, her work sometimes covered musical themes, in pieces such as Musician (1949), Two Musicians (1954), Harmonica Player (1955), and Chorus (1958).
