How do sounds influence our sense of place within cities? How do they affect how we move, feel and relate to one another? SPUR’s latest exhibition, Sound and the City, seeks to answer these questions by convening artists, urban designers, musicians and scholars and showcasing a series of interactive projects that encourage the exploration of our contemporary urban environments with newly open ears.

6:00pm — Doors open

6:30pm — A special performance of JUNKESTRA by Nathaniel Stookey, performed by the percussion section of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra, conducted by Donato Cabrera and featuring the composer on saw. Don't miss it!
