This summer Vector Space co-founder Adam Spontarelli created a robotic hand that paints when notes are played on a piano. To celebrate this unique and wonderful invention, we are hosting a fundraising event at the Academy Center of the Arts.
This project is in collaboration with the Academy's Hill City Keys program, and iniailly was paired with the piano at the Lynchburg Community Market. For this event, however, the robot will paint based on notes played in the Up Front Gallery at 600 Main Street. Attendees can listen as the piano plays and watch live while the robot paints accordingly.
If you have a favorite song or are looking to add a one-of-a-kind piece of art to your collection, join us on October 21st from 5-7pm and take home a canvas of your own. There will be a pianist on-site to take requests, or you can play your particular tune yourself.
Admission is free; cash bar. Artwork is $45 pre-order and $50 at the event.
