A special collaboration between talented artists and the Philharmonic has been unveiled at the first show
of the season, Concerto Serenades. A project that has been anticipated for several months!
Through Palette of Purpose Inc., seven local artists were commissioned to create pieces of art using a
violin as their canvas. One guideline that the artists were given was to depict each concert for the 2018-
2019 Season by using their own artistic technique and choice of medium. These seven violins that
represent seven different concerts for the year, will be on display in the foyer of the auditorium at the
Abilene Convention Center before the shows.
The purpose of this project was to bring together artists of all different backgrounds to celebrate art in
Abilene. This project allowed the artists to express their own perception of the concert's theme and bring
it to life by the use of their artistic abilities.
The violins will be part of the silent auction at the Annual Gold Medallion Ball in March.
