Paris Blues Revisited: Romare Bearden, Albert Murray and Sam Shaw

10-30-2011 – 07-28-2011   ENDED

Designed as a book-on-the-wall, Paris Blues Revisited presents fine reproductions of collages by Romare Bearden, writing by Albert Murray and photographs by Sam Shaw. Following the Shaw-produced film Paris Blues, these three men decided to improvise their own Paris Blues – a collaborative picture-and-writing book celebrating Paris as well as Duke Ellington, co-composer (with Billy Strayhorn) of the movie’s soundtrack and Louis Armstrong, one of that movie’s stars. That book was never completed.· Here, for the first time, finished pages, some of them unmistakable masterworks, as well as works-in-progress make clear the power of jazz to inspire collaborations of long-lasting beauty.

Tue–Sun from 10 am–4 pm and 6–11 pm.
Monday from 6–11 pm.

Admission: FREE and open to the public
