Sound Is An Invisible Color

Sound Is An Invisible Color

Main Galleries (Floor 2)

August 24, 2019 - March 08, 2020

Sound Is An Invisible Color spotlights the multimedia work of Christopher Janney, who designed Harmonic Grove, the entrance to the newly-built Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital. A pioneering artist working with sound, color, light, and technology, Janney has been transforming architectural spaces into interactive installations and producing multimedia performances across the globe for four decades.

In addition to studies for Harmonic Grove, the exhibition includes colorful maquettes and interactive sculptures. Of particular interest is Soundstair, a participatory sound installation that Janney has toured around the globe. In addition to such famous places as the Spanish Steps in Rome, Janney’s Soundstair was featured at LASM, known then as the Louisiana Arts and Science Center, in October 1981.

Harmonies in Color: Six Contemporary Perspectives  is a companion exhibition to  Sound Is An Invisible Color and will feature the work of six renowned colorists on the first floor of the Main Galleries.


This exhibition is sponsored by Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.
