Extraordinarily talented local artists have taken instruments that could not be repaired and created imaginative and inspiring works of art

 

 

 

“Partnership and collaboration are among our core principles, and we are excited to join forces with Zero Empty Spaces for the first time,” said David McClymont, CEO of Palm Beach Symphony. “Each year the symphony receives, rehabs, and donates instruments to underserved students or school music programs in Palm Beach County. These extraordinarily talented local artists have taken instruments that could not be repaired and created imaginative and inspiring works of art.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The “Musical Masterpieces” exhibition was curated by resident artists Anthony Burks and Faith Schwack. A selection of works will also be displayed in the lobby of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach on Sunday, November 7, for the opening of the Palm Beach Symphony 2021-22 season. Guest pianist Hélène Grimaud and flutist Valerie Coleman will usher in the season with a 3 p.m. program featuring the works of Robert Schumann and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

“Our mission at Zero Empty Spaces is to expand the appreciation of all genres of art to create a thriving cultural community,” said Andrew Martineau, Zero Empty Spaces co-founder and managing partner. “The musical instruments provide a unique canvas to our artists, and the auction will benefit our artists as well as support the Palm Beach Symphony.”
