Art Remastered from Home is a video series featuring home performances of original songs inspired by artworks at Krannert Art Museum.

In 2017, Cole Bridges participated in a live music event at Krannert Art Museum called Art Remastered. Six local musicians were invited to find an artwork at KAM that inspired them, write a song in response, and perform it in the galleries.

Art Remastered from Home asks previous participants of Art Remastered to revisit their original song and share a performance of it from home. With this video series, we hope you engage with the artwork at KAM through the fresh perspective of musicians connected to Urbana-Champaign.
