Metamorphosis by Aaron Dworkin

Sunday, March 6, 6–8 p.m.
Helmut Stern Auditorium

Artist Aaron Dworkin explores the modern aesthetic in this compelling multimedia presentation of visual art, spoken word, and music. Founder and President of the internationally acclaimed Sphinx Organization, a MacArthur Fellow, and recently nominated to be the first member of President Obama's National Council on the Arts, Dworkin continues to create his own work. Metamorphosis offers a synthesis of poetry, classical music, and photography and sketches important moments of the artist's personal story, ranging from the perspective of a young boy visiting a concentration camp in Dachau, with the music of Barber's timeless Adagio, to his reflections on the recent loss of his mother through Picture Perfect.  The program will also showcase a cappella selections authored by Dworkin, and the familiar sounds of Beethoven and Massenet in a new multisensory experience. A reception will follow the one-hour performance.

This event is cosponsored by the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor District Library, Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, University Musical Society, UM School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and UMMA.
