Activity: What if you could hear art?

For abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky (Russian, 1866-1944), a rare neurological condition allowed him to see colors when he heard music—and to hear music when he painted. Music and color were bound together within his mind, and in turn, helped him explore these sensations in unconventional, artistic ways. What if you could hear color, too? Now you can!
