The multi-platinum singer-songwriter and mental health advocate has ventured into the realm of visual arts, presenting an innovative exhibit that intertwines music, technology, mental health, and art.

This nightly spectacle is designed to be more than just a visual feast; it is an invitation to pause, reflect, and transform, inspired by the serene beauty of the surroundings and the contemplative melodies of Jewel’s music.

Jewel’s foray into the visual arts is a natural extension of her lifelong passion for creativity and mental health advocacy.

Her journey, which began with sculpture and painting in her youth, has now culminated in The Portal, an exhibit that seamlessly blends her artistic vision with her commitment to mental well-being.

Artnet describes the experience as an “accessible immersion into art therapy,” while People Magazine highlighted Jewel’s stunning fashion choices, noting she was “a work of art herself.”

The Portal: An Art Experience by Jewel is not just an exhibit; it is a holistic journey designed to inspire introspection, connection, and transformation.

Open to the public, this 200-drone sky story residency will play at Crystal Bridges every Thursday to Sunday through July 28, 2024, inviting visitors to explore the depths of their creativity and mindfulness.
