The Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida Southwestern State College in Fort Myers has impressed those with a taste for edgier art and music with retrospectives of arts collectives Fluxus and Guerilla Girls, and next month they're set to turn the spotlight on a experimental composer whose trailblazing work still challenges ears: John Cage.

John Cage (1912-1992) the avant-garde composer and visual artist most infamous for his piece 4'33" but also for countless compositions for percussion, dance, his chance-controlled music and innovative graphic scores, will have his visual art featured in the retrospective John Cage: STEPS & other Works from the Mountain Lake Workshop. The exhibit will feature the never-before-exhibited painting New River Rocks & Washes (measuring in at a mammoth 8.5 x 28 ft.) and a performance of STEPS: A Composition for a Painting.

John Cage: STEPS & other Works from the Mountain Lake Workshop opens Thursday April 11 and runs through July 27 at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery.
