Working with five young artists from the Compositions for LIFE program at LIFE Arts, Inc., Owens, along with other songwriters and educators, have adapted the students’ writings and responses to Glenn Ligon’s exhibition, “Blue Black”, into musical arrangements. The program uses therapeutic methods to focus on the student’s mental and emotional well-being. The students’ original works were presented in a live performance as the closing event of the exhibition. Additionally, LIFE Arts has partnered with Maryville University’s music therapy students to incorporate a songwriting element with four students from Logos School.The project also includes a short film and studio album.
