Lecture & Jazz take center stage at MMA on October 17

The Muskegon Museum of Art continues its fall program series with a combo jazz and lecture presentation on Thursday, October 17.

A special jazz performance by local student musicians will open the program at 6:30 PM. This might be a group from Grand Valley State University, which has played well before at MMA.  MMA Senior Curator E. Jane Connell will then discuss Growing a Collection: African American Art at the MMA in her lecture at 7:00 pm.

Many artists featured in the MMA's Promises of Freedom exhibition—Elizabeth Catlett, Richmond Barthé, Jacob Lawrence, and Henry Ossawa Tanner among them—complement those represented in the MMA's collections.
