Art of the Album

Thu, January 6 - Wed, March 2

Now on view in the Jesup Gallery

This exhibit of album cover art features some of the remarkable women artists who gave voice to the 1920s, '30s, '40s, '50s, and '60s. Throughout wartime and peace, from the great depression to the civil rights movement in the 1960s, these artists broke the glass ceiling and the color barrier. Their legacy is their talent, their courage, and their soulful sound.

You can scan the QR code next to each album displayed in the exhibit to listen to a sample of these history-making recordings. You will hear firsthand how this groundbreaking group of women helped shape the history of American recorded music, and why their influence will continue for generations to come.

Thank you to Ellen and Mark Naftalin for digging through their treasure trove of LPs and sharing this piece of unforgettable American recording history.
