Sagamore News March 25, 2019
Visual art and music have long shared a natural connection. Their relationship is explored through the interaction of balance, form, style, design, harmony, and emotion. Just in time for Miami Music Week, Sagamore’s newest exhibition Music is Life looks at the enduring influence music and celebrated musicians has on contemporary art practices.
Sagamore partners with BelAir Fine Art and Markowicz Fine Art galleries to present a groundbreaking exhibition to transcend the boundaries between art and music. Nearly 100 featured works were selected by Sagamore’s resident art advisor Sébastien Laboureau and StarLight Music OS, a new music and art exhibit production company founded by music expert Octavio Montana.
