Jazz greats fill the galleries of the de Saisset Museum this spring. Among them: Billie Holiday and Miles Davis (above) in black-and-white portraits, thanks to an exhibit subtitled Classic Photographs from the Bank of America Collection.
The exhibition features 16 photographers’ portraits of well-known jazz and modern dance performers in a series of 34 photographs from the 1920s through the 1980s. Among them: Antony Armstrong Jones, Barbara Morgan, and Chuck Stewart. Some images capture the diversity of audiences and local performers who made jazz a distinctly American phenomenon.
Bank of America has a long-standing relationship with SCU, and this exhibit with a global touring schedule makes its first Bay Area appearance here.
