My photos of the Art Ensemble of Chicago were on exhibit during the 2016 DC Jazz Festival in conjunction with artist Bill Warrell's mural project that was based on my photographs. The mural is still available for viewing along with other murals. The mural is seen below:.
My Art Ensemble photos that were in the exhibit (and utilized in the mural), as well as many others, can be seen on the web gallery I created in tribute to the Art Ensemble and in collaboration with this project. Please click on the images to see the web gallery.
