Found Art

  • 'Red Bird'

    'Red Bird'

    This whimsical music video is from a children's album by Dan Zanes called 'Lead Belly, Baby'.  As a young boy he was drawn to the music of Lead Belly that inspired his musical exploration -- now decades later he presents a fresh vision of Lead Belly's music for a new generation.

    The song is wonderfully presented in this video directed by Donald Saaf and Dan Folgar, with Marionettes by Julia Zanes.

  • Log Driver's Waltz

    Log Driver's Waltz

  • Leonard Cohen - Leaving the Table

    Leonard Cohen - Leaving the Table

    A collage music video of a Leonard Cohen song from his final album "You Want It Darker" released in 2016. At Gallery Arcturus, we have spent many hours doing collage together listening to Leonard. This video seems as if it was created by those times. A sense of familiarity and recognition. VEVO released this video a week ago, it's getting a lot of traffic and for good reason – it is striking!
