MassArt Student Artwork inspired by Handel Samson
The Handel and Haydn Society is proud to continue a creative partnership with the Massachusetts College of Art and Design this season. Through Project: Handel, the institutions explore the impact of multidisciplinary learning; demonstrate the ways in which a performing arts organization and an artistic institution of higher education can engage students, educators, concertgoers, and the global Internet community; and test the public’s conceptions of the arts.
Under the instruction of MassArt faculty members, junior class students in the Illustration department created works of visual art inspired by Handel’s dramatic oratorio Samson. H+H Historically Informed Performance Fellow Teresa Neff and H+H musicians visited classes to give students greater insight into who Handel was, how he approached composition, the story of Samson, and the music of this masterwork.
Twelve works will be on view at Symphony Hall’s Cabot-Cahners Room during the same weekend H+H performs Handel’s Samson. For more information about this performance and for tickets click here.
