Visual Space in Music: Drawings by John De Cesare

May 1, 1984 – August 5, 1984

Museum: Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Location: Ground Floor, Design Gallery

On view are some 50 drawings by the American architectural sculptor, selected from the Cooper-Hewitt collection. The pencil drawings, notable for their outstanding draftsmanship and use of vibrant color, are an expression of De Cesare's personal theory of the relationship between art and music; his intent was to convey the sounds heard in a musical performance into visual images.  The exhibition description was bound into the first issue of the American edition of the Italian magazine FMR.
