About The Bold City Contemporary Ensemble
The Bold City Contemporary Ensemble introduces a new project that is launched at MOCA's family day! "Kid Pix" is a collaboration between Dr. Gary Smart and BCCE to find inspiration inside Duval county. Children of any age up to 18 years are invited to submit artwork in any medium at BCCE events in person, or by scanned email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected works will be used by Dr. Smart to create a new piece of music. Discover the intersection of visual art and music at MOCA's family day as BCCE launches their interactive project. Families and children will be invited to draw and interact with the musicians in live performance and improvisation. For more information, please visit www.boldcity.org.
