Palm Beach Symphony and Zero Empty Spaces Collaborate to Present Musical Masterpieces

In a wonderous mash-up of visual and performing arts, Palm Beach Symphony and Zero Empty Spaces is presenting Musical Masterpieces, a collection of 38 artworks incorporating musical instruments created by more than two dozen local artists. Following the exhibition, the works will be auctioned to benefit both non-profit organizations.

“Partnership and collaboration are among our core principles, and we are excited to join forces with Zero Empty Spaces for the first time,” said Palm Beach CEO David McClymont. “Each year the Symphony receives, rehabs and donates instruments to underserved students or school music programs in Palm Beach County. These extraordinarily talented local artists have taken instruments that were no longer playable, and could not be used or repaired and created imaginative and inspiring works of art.”

The artists used violins, violas, cellos, clarinets, guitars and instrument cases as their new media. The Musical Masterpieces exhibition, curated by Anthony Burks and Faith Schwack is on display Sept. 6 through Nov.10 at Zero Empty Spaces Working Art Studio in Palm Beach Gardens. A selection of works will also be displayed in the lobby of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, November 7 for the exciting opening of the Palm Beach Symphony 2021-22 Season at 3 p.m. featuring guest pianist Hélène Grimaud.

All the pieces can be viewed and bid online by clicking HERE. Bidding will close at 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10. Local winning bidders can pick up their art at a champagne reception held at Zero Empty Spaces on Friday, November 12.
