  • 4 by 4 at 4: MSO Chamber Concert with PlySpace Resident Artist Melissa Joy Livermore 4pm to 6pm @ PlySpace Enter through parking lot entrance 608 E Main St.
    Melissa Joy Livermore, Deconstruction project

    Muncie Arts and Culture Council's new artist-in-residence program PlySpace welcomes the Muncie Symphony Orchestra Chamber Concert series to the PlySpace Gallery for a special collaborative performance with resident artist Melissa Joy Livermore. 4 by 4 at 4 features a string quartet performing alongside Livermore's ongoing project, Deconstruction, where guests will engage in the act of taking apart a piece of untreated canvas, thread by thread. Four genres of music, from Baroque to Cole Porter, by four strings musicians will be performed in the PlySpace Gallery. During the concert, PlySpace resident artist Melissa Joy Livermore invites the audience to participate in her community collaborative project, Deconstruction.

    Deconstruction is a project that invites groups of people to engage in the task of taking a piece of untreated canvas apart, thread by thread. The process is intuitive and allows the participants to focus their attention on the present moment, engaging with those around them, or in this case, the music. Over the last three years, Melissa has performed Deconstruction with groups in China, France, and the U.S. and is excited to bring this performance to Muncie.

    Holding the opposite end of the fabric provides the tension necessary to pull each thread from the whole. In a split second, the tension is released and the thread flutters, dropping into a pile. Each thread serves as documentation of time carved out for introspection, intentional conversation, and listening. The act encourages participants to slow down and observe the beauty of the falling thread and the environment around them.

    Tickets for this event are available at the MSO Office (t:765.285.5531) and online here:

    Tickets: Youth/Students: $10 in advance; $15 at door.

    Adults: $20 in advance; $25 at door.
