Adam Nilson, a MIAD graduate and native of Beloit, Wis., opens a one-of-a-kind show of music and large-scale murals at the Beloit Fine Art Incubator (520 E. Grand Ave., Beloit) this Friday, June 5, with an opening reception and artist talk starting at 6 pm.

Painted Beats reflects the apocalypse of inner city life through smoke and light, huge paintings that swallow the viewer in the dark shades of urban decay, and a soundtrack of beats mixed specifically for each piece. Stereos with several sets of Koss-donated headphones will be installed in front of each art work for take one step further into the landscape. Nilson says his viewers/listeners will be absorbed in “an Artist’s Rapture.”

The show is travelling to Beloit via a giant moving truck and will stay installed at BFIA for about a month. After its stay in Beloit, the exhibit travels to Minneapolis, Chicago and Dubuqe, IA.

We recommend not missing this. For more information about the show, visit or the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator website.
