Shared Visions brings together Colorado artists in a unique way, building a community of artistic inspiration and culminating in a performance of new music by Ars Nova. We’re assembling some works of Colorado visual artists, inviting poets/writers to view these works and create new poetry based on them, and then commissioning three Colorado composers to write new music for chorus using these words…a chain of artistic inspiration!”
