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 nilson-studio.com or the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator website.
