Prairie Wind Live brings together the visual, literary and performance arts in an exciting collaboration between the Freeport Art Museum and Highland Community College. For over twenty years, HCC has produced an award-winning magazine publication called Prairie Wind, featuring art, poetry, short stories and music selected from the Highland Gallery’s annual Juried Art exhibition.
This fall, these works will come to life at the Freeport Art Museum through a dynamic exhibition featuring interactive audio and visual recordings. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to listen to selected original music compositions on MP3 devices while viewing the art and a special video installation which will present interviews with the artists.
The opening reception will be a unique chance for visitors to interact with artists, writers and musicians as they present their works live through demonstration, talks and readings. Following the exhibit opening, a series of educational programs is scheduled to take place at FAM, HCC and at the Freeport Public Library.
