Essential Art, Essential Elements is a five-year series of Art, Music, and Literature inspired by the Essential Elements of Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. This year we’re exploring “Earth”—observing the animal kingdom, contemplating the environment, and celebrating the diversity of its people.

 

Earth tones supply a palette rich enough to embrace every shade of human skin. Our musical investigation of earth culminates with a celebration of the colors and cultures that comprise the globe. Composers are Hannibal Lokumbe, Tania León, Randall Woolfe, and Duke Ellington.  Read more details here.
