GatherRound StoryShare: “Do or Die” Art Exhibit”

Thu, February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Do or Die Logo

Artists from the “Do or Die” art exhibit take the stage in the Forum to share their personal “Do or Die” experiences in this storytelling event.

This event is part of Beechwood Arts “Do or Die” winter season. By age 32 Beethoven’s deafness was certain. Overwhelmed, he considered suicide but did not act because, in his own words “…it was my art that held me back… it seemed to me impossible to leave the world until I had brought forth all that I felt was within me.” It was after this lowest point that Beethoven became fearless in his art “shattering the ground rules of symphonic writing for all time,” and composed the vast majority of his famed lifeworks after deafness overtook him.

Beechwood celebrates the power of the arts and the resilience of the human spirit to overcome, transform and find one’s true lifework in the process.  “Do Or Die” explores this theme through multiple events across Music, Art, Storytelling and Community Conversation.
