Utopia: A Music and Dance Ambient Experience

Utopia: A Music and Dance Ambient Experience

Date and Time

Sunday, February 25, 2024 11:30 AM - 4:00 PM


Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park


Two performance times: 11:30 AM and 2:30 PM

Inspired by the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park commissioned sculpture "Utopia" by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, GVSU faculty members Hannah Seidel (dance) and Bill Ryan (music) have created a new performance work that is a direct outgrowth of the sculpture. The human face is the subject of "Utopia", which encompasses the Garden Pavilion in the Welcome Center. A different face fills each wall of the expansive room. The faces of the diverse figures, wearing a calm, meditative expression, are universal symbols of the beauty inherent in humanity. GVSU's acclaimed New Music Ensemble and Dance Company will perform this new work within the sculpture space, offering performances at 11:30 AM and 2:30 PM.

This event also appears on the main events calendar tagged as alumni, arts, clas, concert, dance, music, and performance.
