Music melds with hot glass at Centre College performance

April 19 @ 4:00 pm

Danville – home to the GLASS National Art Museum – is well known in the world of hot glass art and for the glass art program at Centre College. If you enjoy live music, Danville also has plenty of that to offer as well.
But why not experience both at once? In a unique fusion of artistic mediums, Kentucky musician Piper Madison and legendary glass artist Brook Forrest White Jr. are set to unveil a mesmerizing performance at Centre College on Friday, April 19.
The sensory experience will feature Piper performing original music, accompanied by Brook creating blown glass art in real-time. You can have the rare opportunity to witness the dynamic interplay between music and glass art, as each art form influences and enhances the other.
In addition to being a senior at Centre, Piper is an American Billboard top 40 recording artist and songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actress. Brook, a renowned glass artist and graduate of Centre College (’91), enthusiastically welcomed Piper’s suggestion to integrate their respective art forms. Drawing on his decades of experience, White brings a wealth of creativity and craftsmanship to the collaboration. In 2004, Brook co-founded Flame Run Hot Glass Studio and Gallery where he continues to foster a vibrant and diverse arts community for students, glass artists, collectors and enthusiasts.
“Creating with Brook White and the team at Flame Run has been an awesome experience,” Piper said. “I love to see these two art forms that mean so much to all of us come together in such a unique way. Hopefully this is the first of many collaborations to come!”

Brook added, “For me, music and blowing glass go hand in hand. We always have music playing when we are working in the studio. Working with Piper on this project has been fun. She is very talented. Her music for this project accentuates our hot glass dance!”
The collaborative performance will take place at Centre College (Jones Visual Arts Center) in Danville, on Friday, April 19, 2024 at 4 p.m. Jones Visual Arts Center is located near the intersection of S. Beatty Avenue and W. Colonial Way on the campus of Centre College.
