LISTENING & THE ARTS
Listening through & Listening to Artistic Expression


We all have our own ways of listening—both inwardly and to the world around us. Artistic expression provides a unique experience for both artist and listener. Though this is true on any theme, the artistic expressions provided here are all around the theme of listening.
Anyone who has listening-related poems, songs, images or other artwork to share on this page is welcome to send it
