APSU presents special ‘Landscape in Art and Music’ on March 28th

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – For centuries, artists and musicians have found inspiration in landscapes. Maybe it’s the serenity of a sunset over a wooded hill or the danger implied by looming dark mountains that speaks to them on a visceral level.

The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 6:00pm with a gallery viewing and a concert to follow at 7:30pm in the Music/Mass Communication Building. «Read the rest of this article»
