A visit to one of the city’s anchor art museums–the Walters, BMA or AVAM–is different every time. New exhibits are installed and old ones are taken out, obviously, but on a deeper level, the way you experience a certain work in the permanent collection can change. Maybe the lighting felt different. Maybe the things going on in your life made something about the piece more striking or less so. Or maybe you just decided to pay closer attention.

Tonight, violist and composer Liz Meredith and cellist Paul Rucker–an accomplished multi-disciplinary artist in his own right–will add the element of sound to the gallery perusing at the Walters as part of the Art/Sound/Now series. Meredith will be performing an original work inspired by some of the landscape paintings in the “From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story” exhibit, and Rucker will musically “interpret” Italian artwork from the 13th-15th centuries. Their playing may stir new feelings about the art that inspired it, or help to cast an element of the work in a different light.

7-8:30 p.m., The Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St., (410) 547-9000, thewalters.org, $10.
