The upcoming music festival dubbed Music Meets Art is put together by the Society of Nigerian Artists (SNA) and Musician Society of Nigeria (MUSON) and is a three-part program to celebrate the unique interrelations between art and music.
The program is scheduled to run from October 17 to 28, featuring prominent artists, an exhibition, awards dinner and art auction at the MUSON Centre, Lagos.
The highlight of the exhibition will be a 7-year compilation showcase by renowned artist, Diseye Tantua about artists living in Ghana and Nigeria; their working lives, thinking processes and inspiration as well as artworks done by Sickle Cell patients to support the fight against Sickle Cell Anaemia.
An awards dinner will be held in honour of celebrated artist, Kolade Oshinowo to mark his 70th birthday anniversary. It will also serve as a launch pad to unveil the SNA’s Hall of Fame, a memorial to celebrated musicians and artists.
The auction of selected pieces from the exhibition will raise funds towards achieving the SNA’s objectives including a new secretariat and an academic journal.
The 10-day celebration is expected to play host to eminent personalities from the African arts industry, art enthusiasts, students and the general public at large.
