June 30: Hear Art Stories by Teens in Our Earshot Program at Speed Museum

The Speed Art Museum and Arts Angle Vantage host a listening event for teens who took part in Earshot, the organization's first audio storytelling program. It happens at 3 p.m., Sunday, June 30, as part of the museum's June Community Day.

Arts Angle Vantage mentor Claire McInerny working with Addison Lowry and Alexander Place in this summer's Earshot program.

Earlier this year, Arts Angle Vantage put out a call for teens to register for Earshot and capture sound that conveys the energy and atmosphere of people experimenting, creating and performing.

Now, we want to share participants’ stories. They capture the mounting of Kentucky Opera’s production of “The Hobbit,” part of a summer youth camp, and the installation of “Infinity Mirrored Room – Let’s Survive Forever” by internationally renowned artist Yayoi Kusama. That massive 2017 work of art opens to the public at the museum on July 12.

This event is free and open to the public. Photography and audio will be recorded at this event.
