Jazz Diplomacy Exhibition Viewing at the US Diplomacy Center – March 19, 2018

Date: March 19, 2018
Time: 2:00pm
Location: U.S. Diplomacy Center
The United States Diplomacy Center is excited to feature the photography exhibit “Jam Session: America’s Jazz Ambassadors Embrace the World” in the upper level of the Pavilion from February 14th to May 31th, 2018. This guest exhibit, created by Meridian International Center, chronicles the international tours of legendary jazz musicians who were selected by the Department of State to serve as roving cultural “ambassadors” from the 1950s to the 1970s. The U.S. Department of State commissioned six copies of it, and many U.S. embassies have sponsored the exhibit in venues around the world. Dr. Curtis Sandberg, former Meridian Vice President for the Arts, curated content for the exhibit. We are delighted to offer a small group of our Global Leadership Council Members the opportunity to see this expertly curated photographic exhibit.
