What if you were the Mona Lisa (she smiled enigmatically)?
Or a Picasso (she mused abstractedly)?
Well, I am an exhibit at the Museum of Making Music (MOMM) in southern California and on Wednesday June 26th, I’m coming alive at the Museum … of making music!
MOMM is a very unusual museum – all about music and music-making – and here’s what we LOVE about it and why we’d LOVE to see you at the show!
We love their easy-to-navigate website.
We love their MISSION, VISION & CORE BELIEFS, including:
“Music is a global human phenomenon but also an intimate personal experience that affects our lives everyday.”
“The interaction of people, instruments, and imagination makes music.”
We love their EXHIBITS (especially the current one about HARPS!) which all focus on aspects of “making music” since 1890 – The music itself, the instruments, manufacturing, distribution and marketing of them. And we LOVE that the exhibits are hands-on.
- Here’s are the very cool harp artifacts from the exhibit
- Here are photos of a hands-on harp exhibit with kids & adults
- Here’s where you can see their galleries
… and this April 21st UT San Diego article about the harp exhibit, concert series and education program.
I love that the MOMM is the brainchild of the NAMM Foundation (NAMM stands for “National Associate of Music Merchants” which hosts some of the largest music product trade shows in the world each year – one in California and the other in Nashville)
And I LOVE that my lovely assistant, Beatriz, and B.J. at the MOMM found me all these links so you can see what we all love about MOMM and what you’ll get to see when you come to my show Wednesday June 26th!
And finally … I love that the 4-image photo of me the top is my own invention NOT by Andy Warhol, and NOT in the MOMM … made possible by Photoshop and Robert Stegmaier’s wonderful photo of me (Thanks, Robert!)
I’m performing Sat. Jun. 22nd, 2013 at the Pt. Reyes Dance Palace – where I gave my first-ever solo concert nearly 4 decades ago.
And Wed. June 26 at the Museum of Making Music (MOMM) in Carlsbad, CA (near San Diego).
