Four Barns of Middletown, by Cassandra Day
Photographic scenes of Middletown by experienced and up-and-coming local artists are featured in the "Hear More, See More" exhibition, which accompanies Wesleyan University's Middletown Remix "Hear More, See More" festival on May 11 from 2-5 p.m.

The free opening reception is May 10 from 6 to 9 p.m. at MAC 650 Gallery, 650 Main Street.

The show, originally called "Angles of Middletown," is curated by Carolyn Reeves, president of the MAC 650 Artist Coop, as part of the North End Gallery Walk. The photographic tribute to Middletown features images from novices to professionals, and shows a variety of shots of the city.

The closing reception will take place on June 7 from 5 to 8 p.m.

After a year of exploring, sharing, and remixing the sounds of Middletown on the Wesleyan University's MiddletownRemix website, celebrate the city's acoustic identity at a festival featuring four world premieres of works commissioned for the festival, three live DJ sets, two art/sound installations, a laptop orchestra, food trucks, graffiti art, improv sketches, and a gallery walk.

Master of ceremonies is DJ Arun Ranganathan and there will be a flash mob dance at 2:30 p.m.

MiddletownRemix is a collaborative, place-based sound project that enables people to develop and express the acoustic identity of greater Middletown. Want to record and contribute your own sounds, or create a remix?
