February 20-28, 2019
Fort Smith Symphony and The Unexpected teamed up for the first time to create works of art in support of the symphony's May 11, 2019 symphony concert. Yatika Fields once again came to Fort Smith and mentored for one week select UAFS art students in the creation of artworks based on Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, a suite of ten pieces composed in 1874 by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky. The original music was based on drawings and watercolors by artist Viktor Hartmann. The artwork was displayed at the May 11, 2019 concert.
