Combining moving testimonials, original photographs and audience participation, the NAMM Museum of Making Music unveils “What Music Means to Me” its most personal and interactive exhibit yet. Inspired by Richard Rejino’s multifaceted project of the same name, “What Music Means to Me” opens up a channel where music makers—amateur, accomplished or aspiring—can communicate the power of music in their lives. Patrons are invited to view, listen and contribute to the experiential exhibition, which opens on December 12, 2014 and runs through August 2015.
“We were interested in creating an exhibition around Rejino’s work because it shines a light on the core purpose of our work at the Museum of Making Music,” says Museum executive director Carolyn Grant. “We believe that music-making matters, that it is significant to the human experience. This unique exhibit illustrates that music-making offers direct access to expression through sound. Through music, we can connect at a very deep level with life–from the everyday happenings of our existence, to life’s beauty, sorrow, hopes, or simply the unnameable.”
