The Final Week at New York Public Library

It is hard to believe, but the Jazz Loft Project exhibition is in the final week at NYPL’s Library of Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.  As you probably heard the city of New York has proposed unprecedented new cuts in budgets for the arts including NYPL.  So one way to register a complaint would be to go see the Jazz Loft Show before it comes down.  The last day is Saturday May 22.

This is kind of a sad week for us, to see the show go down in New York after all these years to get the project launched in the “home” town.  But we’re very happy to say the the show will open at the Chicago Cultural Center on July 17 and then travel to Duke University’s Nasher Museum of Art and the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego and the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona.  Several other venues, domestic and international, are possible.

Here is a photo from that snowy opening night in February in which 600-800 people attended.
