Italian artist Zoe Cinel would like to invite you on a walk with her Wednesday.

Cinel created a seven-part musical piece based on virtual walks she took with her parents. Now she’s releasing the piece, and offering an artist talk and tour of her studio at the Soo Visual Arts Center (SooVAC) via the center's Instagram Wednesday.

Shortly after Zoe Cinel returned to Minnesota from her home country of Italy to continue working as an associate curator at the Rochester Art Center, Italy entered the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic.

She watched from afar as friends and family were locked down, and by March, saw the first signs of the virus moving into Minnesota.

Although Minnesotans were placed under a stay-at-home order, restrictions here were not nearly as tight as those imposed in parts of Italy. Eventually, her parents were given the OK to go on daily walks. For a week, Cinel’s parents would go on a walk at 7 p.m. that she would watch later. Then at 7 p.m. in Minnesota, she would record herself going on a walk -- seven hours later, but at the same time of day.

“I asked my parents to collaborate on a project because I miss them and they miss me,” Cinel wrote about the project. “Through art, we can build memories together even across an ocean and ... time zones.”

The seven-day period played into her arrangement of the seven-part piece. Agnese Banti assisted with the sound and Zoe Cinel created the video for the walk.

Participants are invited to join Zoe on the walk at 7 p.m. Wednesday. She will guide people through her creative processes and talk about the piece, “Symphony for a Walk of 7,” and the healing power of walking during the quarantine and recent upheavals.

Like the walks that inspired the idea, you don’t have to attend live at 7 p.m. but you can watch a video of the tour later on the SooVAC website
