The two prominent Cleveland locations have brought back the Virtual MIX at CMA, which will return to the museum, digitally,  on Friday, October 2. 

This year, CMA has created “MIX: Amplify,” which is described as “a celebration of how music and art have promoted social justice and combatted racism through messages of rage, hope and empowerment.”

The event will feature live music from DJ Vikter Duplaix, and will include art and music from various artists throughout the hour-long event. 

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame currently has it’s own physical and digital gallery exploring the topic, It’s Been Said All Along: Voices of Rage, Hope & Empowerment highlights Hall of Fame inductees and artists who use music as a platform for protesting injustice and fighting for equality.

“Amplified through artifacts, artist narratives and intimate images captured by influential African American photographers, the exhibition explores these important issues we face in 2020, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary year,” CMA said in a press release. 

Interested parties may register for the event here. 

Those who take part in the virtual celebration are encouraged to share their pictures on social media using “#MIXatCMA” and “#MuseumFromHome.”
