From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daniel Dutton, born 1959 near Somerset, Kentucky, is a contemporary artist, lyricist, and composer whose work combines visual, musical, and narrative arts.

During the 80s, Dutton showed visual and video installation art at the J. B. Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. The Speed Museum commissioned two video works from Dutton: "A Day in the Life of the Artist," and "Water; an installed environment."

Dutton's work was featured as a one man show in the rotunda of the US Congressional Office Building in 1985.

In 1990, Kentucky Opera premiered Dutton's first opera, The Stone Man, at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. The Stone Man was followed by a four part cycle of dance operas titled The Secret Commonwealth. These four operas; The Changeling & the Bear, The Road, Love & Time, and The Approach of the Mystery, were staged between 1995 and 2003. The first three operas were filmed and broadcast by Kentucky Educational Television. The Changeling was nominated for an Emmy.

Dutton's visual art work is displayed in the Corporate Art Collection of Brown-Forman Corporation, Louisville, KY, the Berea College Art Museum, Berea, KY, the LeBlond Machino Corporate Art Collection, Cincinnati, OH. and 21C Museum, Louisville, KY.

In 2003, Dutton was commissioned to paint a set of 12 scenes from traditional ballads by 21C Museum, Louisville, Kentucky. The paintings, along with a book and Dutton's recordings of traditional ballads are complementary aspects of a project titled Ballads of the Barefoot Mind, on display at 21C Museum in the Fall of 2006. Those paintings, as well as other work by Daniel Dutton, may be viewed on a website; [1]
