Kid Pan Alley and the children of Pocahontas Elementary visited the VMFA in October. Each class chose a piece to write about. They saw how music and art are but different languages that each tell a story. Here’s a video of one of the songs inspired by the minimalist painting Noise, Broken Pencil, Cheap Western by Ed Ruscha, painted in 1963. And below that, you can watch a Facebook Live video of the whole concert. It’s always fascinating to see what the paintings evoke in the children.
