Loving Beethoven Traveling Musical Installation
The world will celebrate Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday anniversary in 2020. Beethoven (1770 – 1827) is one of the greatest composers of all time, without whose work it would be impossible to understand the last 200 years of music.
The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach, in partnership with Interactive Music Museum (MIMMA) in Malaga, Spain, is paying tribute to this milestone thanks to the traveling musical installation Loving Beethoven. The installation will be at the Cultural Center from March 6 to May 26, 2020.
The interactive installation, created by MIMMA’s design team, features sizable individual spheres that when hugged, allow you to feel Ludwig van Beethoven’s music through vibration. The spheres change color when touched, which creates a unique sensorial and immersive experience.
The installation is meant to bring the user closer to the music in a therapeutic way. Thanks to the novelty of the exhibition, it demonstrates the capacity to enjoy music in all of us. Loving Beethoven is an original music therapy experience, accessible, personal, and unique. The exhibition will also include programs for activities that highlight artists and creators from Malaga, Spain.
Admission tickets are $5 and will be available for purchase online, in advance, over the phone, and at the door. Adult and children group tours are available for reservation. Cultural Center members are free. Children under the age of 5 are free.
Loving Beethoven is sponsored in part by Robert and Monica Jacoby and Joseph P. Bryant.
Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday | 10:00am – 4:00pm
