An Exhibition of New Sound Art

In the Garden of Sonic Delights is a major exhibition of sound art woven into the fabric of Westchester County, NY. Centered at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, the exhibition spans six of the region’s most dynamic cultural institutions and features fifteen commissioned, site-specific artworks by some of the world’s most sought-after artists working in the medium of sound. Each artist has drawn inspiration from their chosen location, creating work that is mindful of the natural and human-made sounds and systems already present in the environment, while engaging each site’s unique characteristics, be they acoustic, historic, architectural, or aesthetic. Now coming into the fall, hear how the artworks are evolving in response to the seasonal changes in their surroundings. Visit In the Garden of Sonic Delights for an ear-opening experience before its completion on November 2.

Open through November 2  Thursday – Sunday 10:00am – 3:00pm
