Jean McElvane’s Playlist: Walls, Windows, and Mirrors //

NIAD artist, Jean McElvane, has created a playlist of songs about walls, windows, and mirrors for us!

“The idea for this set list came from the thought of looking beyond four walls, through the window, and a good look in the mirror looking back at what’s there,” says Jean.

You can view Jean’s available artwork in the NIAD Gallery Store by clicking here.

Enjoy her Walls, Windows, and Mirrors playlist!
