Colors & Chords is a one of a kind event that celebrates music and art by pairing bands with prominent local artists live onstage for a 30 minute set. Held in the historic Turner Hall Ballroom, this event merges musical craftsmanship with an individual artist’s interpretation of the music. Each artist’s evolving canvas is projected on a massive screen behind the band, creating a dramatic sound and visual experience.

Multiple participatory art installations will be staged in the balcony, inviting audience members to actively engage in the creation of art throughout the evening. Canvases created onstage and in the balcony will be available to purchase through a silent auction.

On the main floor, goods created by our students during Islands of Brilliance workshops will be available for sale throughout the night. This includes our popular holiday greeting cards, framed art prints, and a variety of fresh t-shirt designs!

Thank you to our Mainstage Sponsor Milwaukee Brewing Company! And to our Community Partners 414digital, AIGA Wisconsin, Big Shoes Network, and United Adworkers! 🙂
