Jazz Greats: Classic Photographs from the Bank of America Collection

On view through June 16, 2018

TUESDAY-SUNDAY. 11a.m.-4p.m. 
The magic that happens when a photographer captures a precise moment in a performing artist’s life – on or off stage – or reflects the joy the audience experiences – is now on view. The exhibition, comprised of 34 photographs from the 1920s to the 1980s, portrays artists from varied genres in music and dance. Many are legends from the uniquely American art form of jazz including images of iconic performers Miles Davis, John & Alice Coltrane, Billie Holiday, Eric Dolphy, Louis Armstrong, Eartha Kitt, Ella Fitzgerald, and Dizzy Gillespie.
This exhibition is provided by Bank of America’s Art in Our Communities® program.
