Local Art Front And Center At Groovacious In Cedar City
Music and art are inextricably linked. From iconic album art on records to music videos separating the two is almost impossible. From Beyonce and Jay-Z shooting a 2018 video in the Louvre in Paris to Pink Floyd reaching out to Egyptian digital artist Ahmed Emad Eldin to use his art for their final album "The Endless River" and E.S Posthumus using Caravaggio's art for the album "Unearthed" artists and musicians have always been inspired by each other's work.
Thanks to the Art Wall at Groovacious you don't need to travel to France, Egypt, or Italy to see that long-standing tradition display. Printmakers Whitney Staheli and Emily Ronquillo's "Rock 'N' Roll" exhibit is a collection of prints inspired by their favorite lyrics, songs, and bands. The Art Wall at Groovacious began in 2019 and is a way for local artists to display their latest creations to an appreciative audience. The "Rock 'N' Roll: Print Exhibition" will be on display throughout the summer and you can see more of Whitney Staheli's and Emily Ronquillo's art at: paperwhitney.com and e.olivia.art on Instagram.
Groovacious is located at 195 W. 650 S. in Cedar City. Hit me up on the B92.1 app to let me know what your favorite album covers are.
