Paul Barnes, Marguerite Scribante Professor of Piano in the Glenn Korff School of Music at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, performed a special program of composer Philip Glass’ works inside “Greenpoint,” a sculpture by Richard Serra that is part of the Sheldon Museum of Art's collection. The performance pays tribute to the creative relationship between Glass and Serra, who died March 26. It kicked off the Lincoln Calling music and arts festival, presented by the Lincoln Arts Council. Glass once worked as an assistant for Serra after the two befriended each other in Paris in the early 1960s. Barnes has worked with Glass for 29 years, including two commissions and several transcriptions and recordings of his work.
