(ROCKWALL, TX — May 8, 2020) For someone who has spent most of her life loving and supporting the arts community, Joetta Currie has recently completed two commissioned triptych pieces of art for the Rockwall School of Music.
“Ever since moving into our new building a year ago, we’ve always had a dream of decorating our main hallway with some music-specific artwork,” said Russ Porter, owner of Rockwall School of Music. “After looking at countless options, I realized I should just hire a well-known local artist and let them use their creativity and talent to create something original.”
The series of events that led to this joint venture started several years ago when Currie and Porter worked together to offer a summer art camp to our community. Their mutual admiration for each other’s musical and artistic talent began to grow. A few months ago, Porter saw a social media post of a mural that Currie created for her grandchild’s bedroom. That led him to reach out to Currie with the idea of creating a musical mural at the Rockwall School of Music.
After combining Porter’s love of music with Currie’s love of the visual arts, these triptych pieces of art are now on display in the main hallway of the Rockwall School of Music.
“This was such a fun project to work on,” Currie said. “I actually had a band background so allowing me to use my artistic talent to create a musical triptych for the Rockwall School of Music was more fun than I could have imagined.”
‘When creative individuals from different backgrounds combine their talents, the world is a better place. This is our way of helping to display art in public places’, said Porter
