The Arkansas Arts Center has provided this link to a video of 12th national Drawing Invitational artist Victor Ekpuk creating a work on the wall of the gallery while listening to Beethoven’s masterpiece “Ode to Joy.” Ekpuk started the work at a public event Aug. 21; like all the work in his public painting events, it will be destroyed after the show, “Outside the Lines,” goes down Oct. 5. Were you there for the event?
