September 15, 2010

KOKOMO, Ind. – Indiana University Kokomo art students are busy displaying their work around the state.

Now through the end of September, the Rhum Academy of Music and Performing Arts Center in Kokomo is featuring "Art Inspired by Music" by several IU Kokomo students. They are Stephanie Britton, Theresa Stewart, Ashley DeWitt, Tarja Harney, and Abby Workman. Elizabeth Jorgenson, who graduated in May, also has her work on display.

This display consists of a variety of artworks inspired by specific songs, the emotional impact of music, or personal human connection to music. The Academy is located at 110 N. Washington Street. For more information, call (765) 236-0567.

In addition, Abby Workman and Theresa Stewart will also be in Oranje in Indianapolis on September 18, from 8 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Oranje is a contemporary art & music event showcasing progressive artists and musicians. The goal of Oranje is to create an interactive experience of art and music presented in a stimulating, urban environment. Workman and Stewart will share a booth with Minda Douglas, assistant professor of fine arts, and two former IU Kokomo students, Tim Davis and Christina Hollering.
