Chuck Haddix: The Fine Art of Dan White
Watch and listen as Kansas City jazz greats come to life. Chuck Haddix discusses the musicians portrayed in The Fine Art of Jazz exhibit on display April 10 - May 23 at the Central Library. A jam session featuring Jim Mair’s quartet and some of the legends pictured on the walls follows Haddix’s talk.
White, a Pulitzer Prize winner, took the portraits over the past 20 years. He has captured the likenesses of Queen Bey, Jay McShann, Claude Williams, and Tim Whitmer, among others. Haddix, director of the Marr Sound Archives at UMKC, is well known for his jazz expertise.
The event is co-sponsored by Mid-American Arts Alliance and Boulevard Brewing Company.
