Artwork inspired by music that was inspired by artwork

See how local artists interpret Pictures at an Exhibition!

In the 1870s, composer Modesto Mussorgsky attended a memorial exhibition of his friend, artist and architect Viktor Hartmann. This moved Mussorgsky to write a piece of music inspired not only by the experience, but specifically mused by ten pieces of artwork.

At this concert, we will have replicas of the original Hartmann artwork next to contemporary works from visual artists at Echoes of Chicago — a nonprofit whose mission is to create affordable, innovative arts and music events that promote Chicago culture and community while raising awareness and funds for local nonprofits.

The artwork will be displayed from 2:15 to the end of our annual silent auction.

Unless otherwise noted, the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra performs at:

Anne and Howard Gottlieb Hall
Joy Faith Knapp Music Center
