Visual and Musical Arts: Rothko Chapel

Art is exciting. There is always something to discover. Artists always continue to contemplate life and communicate through new works. Recently someone told me about this music inspired by the visual art at the Rothko Chapel. A harmonization of expression through sound and space, this piece, written after the composer Morton Feldman’s visit to the chapel, draws us in to the present moment of contemplation. The mission statement of the chapel itself is, “[…] to inspire people to action through art and contemplation, to nurture reverence for the highest aspirations of humanity, and to provide a forum for global concerns.” http://www.rothkochapel.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=3&Itemid=31
