Creativity Explored artists use music as a source of inspiration. 

In Forte, a group exhibition, Creativity Explored artists use sheet music as a source to visually interpret languages not usually intended to communicate words. By interpreting pictorial lexicons like musical notation, primarily through works on paper, artists create a new language of mark making. 

At the opening reception for Forte on August 13, 2015, solo musician Danny Paul Grody will perform a unique set of guitar-based music inspired by some of the artworks in the exhibition. Grody will explore sound through the elements of texture, abstraction, and mood found in the drawings. In addition, Grody will provide a selection of recorded music that can be listened to throughout the duration of the exhibition.
