See What I Hear,” a new exhibit featuring 40 works by local artist Robert Meganck, opened on Friday, Aug. 25 at Stratford Hills Shopping Center.

Meganck started the series on April 7, 2020, the day legendary musician John Prine died. Since then, he has created 185 illustrations, each inspired by a different song.

The new exhibit spans two locations, both situated in the Stratford Hills Shopping Center. You can find the illustrations at Artspace and Boyd Realty Group.

Songs illustrated in the exhibit span a variety of genres and decades — from “Sing For Your Supper” by The Mamas & the Papas to “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys to “Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin. The series will be on display until Saturday, Sept. 16.
