Composer and musician Paul Dresher’s “Sound Maze,” a hands-on interactive exhibit featuring inventive oversized musical instruments creating a cacophony of sound – including a 17-foot-high pendulum — continues at the Napa Valley Museum, 55 Presidents Drive in Yountville.
Dresher will lead tours from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on three Saturdays, June 24, July 1 and July 29 and will be at the Museum’s Member Appreciation Party from 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, July 28, which includes a barbecue and beverages.
Designed for all ages, all levels of musical experience, and all types of minds, this hands-on installation lets participants experiment with extraordinary inventions to discover new ways of creating sound and music. General admission is $10, $5 for those ages 16 and younger and seniors, and members are free.
In the museum’s Spotlight Gallery, nature photographer MJ Schaer is featured in “iNSiGHT: the eye behind the lens” beginning a one-month exhibition and art sale to benefit the museum’s education programs.
“As an outdoor photographer, my aspirations for ‘iNSiGHT’ come from the multitude of subjects and objects I encounter in my connection and passion for the great outdoors. With acute observation and perception, taking note of small details, one is enabled to visualize, capture and create a visual impact from these outdoor subjects, thus creating the adventure and goal of this photographic series,” he said.
He will be on hand from 1 to 7 p.m., Saturday, June 24, with a free reception and art sale from 4 to 7 p.m. RSVP at napavalleymuseum.org" href="http://napavalleymuseum.org" target="_blank">napavalleymuseum.org.
