Third Thursday Talks: Jazz Greats

Thursday, February 17, 2022, 6pm - 7pm

Free Virtual Event

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 on view in Jazz Greats: Classic Photographs from the Bank of America Collection. Join Joshua Welchez, UCR Jazz Ensembles director; Douglas McCulloh, senior curator at the California Museum of Photography; and Rita Souther, UCR ARTS exhibitions manager, for a virtual conversation about the intersection of photography and jazz in this exhibition currently on view at UCR ARTS.
