During Museum hours, Lee Mingwei’s Sonic Blossom (2013-present) will bring opera to the Gardner Museum in the form of a spontaneous gift. Donning an elaborate robe, a vocal soloist will select a visitor in the galleries at random, approaching them with the simple question: “May I give you the gift of song?” If the offer is accepted, they will be guided to a specially designed chair and given a personal performance of one of five lieder (art songs) by Franz Schubert.

This exhibition is in conjunction with In the Company of Artists: 25 Years of Artists-in-Residence, an exhibition concurrently on view in the Hostetter Gallery in the museum.
