The Civil War at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
July 1-3, 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has two exhibitions commemorating the event: "Photography and the American Civil War" and "The Civil War and American Art"; both to September 2.
Inspired by and using images from the photography exhibition, the Met's artist in residence, Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky That Subliminal Kid) , performed a new piece, "Civil War Symphony" for string ensemble with live-mixed electronic music and video.
