Collaborative Art Projects: combining music, visual art and text

The interplay of the art disciplines creates more beauty and wonder than any one discipline presented in isolation. 
Creativity cannot be limited to only one expression. 
The use of as many senses as possible enhances the emotional experience for the listener and viewer. 

A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it. (Michelangelo)

All the arts are based on the senses. What they do for the person who practices them, and also the persons interested in them, is make that particular sense more active and more acute. (Henry Moore)

A writer should write with his eyes and a painter paint with his ears. (Gertrude Stein)
