Eli Kahn doesn’t consider himself a visual artist.

However, the longtime local musician currently has an exhibit open through July 3 at the South Bend Museum of Art.

“I like creating spaces that have a feeling to them,” Kahn says. “I think my music is based on trying to present a feeling, so I wanted to do that with some visual component.”

He released the solo album “How Are You? No, Really … How Are You?” in 2021. While he was working on it, Kahn began collaborating with an engineer in the field of art installations to turn his album into an immersive audio-visual experience, something he had done a few times in the past, starting with 2018’s “STRT/SLCT” with Saint Mary’s College art professor Krista Hoefle at The Birdsell Project in South Bend and, most recently, “Portal to a Better Dimension” in South Bend’s Pier Park with visual artist GIIIVENS.
