The exhibition of paintings and drawings by Jack Ox display the ways in which the elements of music become visualized in art.  Tone, duration, and pitch of the beginning of a Bruckner symphony are represented through the use of small colored strips.  The musical elements are combined with paintings of architecture which can vaguely be made out under the colored strips.  This combination "infuses architecture with a sense of time, and music with space," ultimately appealing to all senses.
