YELLOW – A TRIO INSPIRED BY THE PIANO GUYS
The Piano Guys have produced numerous fun and inspirational music videos for their fans, so we thought we would create one for them. The music was composed specifically for The Piano Guys and everyone at The Piano Guys’ headquarters. The composer, Kristen Personius, was thinking of the color “yellow” when she wrote this piece. These young artists are not trying to emulate The Piano Guys as they have their own careers which started at a very young age. They all came together to make this happen. The performers had the wonderful opportunity of attending The Piano Guys concert in Red Rocks, Colorado, and met and chatted with them at the end of the show.

THORNE MINIATURES – by Grace Hale
Thorne Miniatures is a collection of six piano miniatures each inspired by one of Narcissa Thorne’s miniature rooms found in the basement of the Art Institute of Chicago. Thorne’s miniature rooms are best described as model rooms of mostly European and American interiors built during the 1930s and 1940s. One of the most peculiar characteristics of Thorne’s miniature rooms is the absence of any human figures. Instead, she hints at human existence with small inanimate objects like a soccer ball or books. As viewers, we cannot help but envision scenes of running children, cocktail parties, or a single bookworm enjoying an early sunrise in these empty rooms. This is the role of the Thorne Miniatures—to supply the musical scenes in such a way that fills this lifeless void. The Thorne Miniatures is an ode to childhood and imagination as explored in the museum collection.
