Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery

Established in 1998 as an art gallery, performance space, literary think tank, music venue, theater, and host for films, lecture series, and children’s programs, Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery serves more than 20,000 artists and patrons annually as a place to experiment with, express, and communicate ideas. The SEED Grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation reflects Robert Rauschenberg’s commitment to emerging and forward-thinking artists, and Eyedrum artists, chosen for the integrity and originality of their work, are those who may be exhibiting for the first time or are well-known practitioners taking big risks. Eyedrum occupies a unique place in the Southeast, presenting music and performers on tour from every continent as well as homegrown artists working in media ranging from watercolor to noise to ballet.
