Synergy between Jazz Music and Visual Arts

TAG 168, a local foundation for Aruban Artists, will again host an art exhibition during the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival 2010 putting paintings, sculptures, even poetry by local artists on display for the duration of the two-day happening.

The highlight of the exhibition will be a raffle,  finding a new home for the Cooperative Painting created as a result of collaborative work, last year, during CSJF 2009.

The piece was made by several well-known local artists, and it will be raffled this year as a special treat to concert-goers.

Organizers report that artists will be getting together again this year to create another Cooperative Painting, in honor of CSJF 2010, to be raffled next year.

The Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival 2010 explores the relationship between music and the visual arts, allowing both disciplines to inspire audiences and enrich our island culture. Looking at beautiful works of art while listening to music nourishes the soul, and sustains the human spirit.

There is a great connection between Jazz and modern art, as the improvisational nature of jazz tends to connect well with abstract art, which is less restricted, and more innovative.

The Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival is pulling together both, presenting a synergy which includes an exposition of works by Aruba’s finest artists, combined with music from local and international renowned artists.
