Herriman-Jewell Series presents Bill Frisell: Harmony featuring Petra Haden, Hank Roberts & Luke Bergma

March 4, 2020 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM CST
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, 4525 Oak Street
Kansas City, MO 64111 United States

Famed guitarist Bill Frisell’s HARMONY features new compositions, imaginatively reworked music from Frisell’s catalog and a typically sharp selection of jazz and Americana staples. Throughout, Petra Haden’s dreamlike, often wordless lead vocals and the trio’s quietly powerful harmonies grant Frisell’s music dimensions it’s never known before. Remarkably, the thoughtful beauty and evocative patience that mark his guitar playing are both smartly accented and greatly magnified.

Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents Formed from Fire: Enamel Portrait Miniatures

Kansas City, MO 64111 United States

Portrait miniatures are intimate tokens of love, loss, allegiance, and affection exchanged between friends. The earliest examples were painted in watercolor on vellum (animal skin). By the 1600s, new techniques of painting enamels facilitated an artist’s ability to paint delicate portraits resembling tiny oil paintings. They offered a robust alternative to watercolor on ivory or vellum because they do not fade. Enamel miniatures are more costly than watercolor miniatures, due to their complex and risky creation process.
