"Make A Joyful Noise": Renaissance Art and Music at Florence Cathedral
Through January 11, 2015
Three marble panels from Italian sculptor Luca della Robbia's famed organ loft created for Florence Cathedral traveled to the U.S. for the first time for this exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA. The exhibition brings the panels back into the musical environment for which they were created by displaying them with other musical objects, including choir books from the cathedral and a lectern designed to hold them. The High is also presenting live musical performances by local singers and musicians in the galleries as part of the exhibition.
