“Herman Leonard: Jazz Memories” exhibition at the Lyman Allyn Art Museum

By Matt Micucci


The Lyman Allyn Art Museum in New London, Connecticut is presenting “Herman Leonard: Jazz Memories,” an exhibition featuring 30 photographs from the photographer’s Jazz Memories series.


The exhibition, which started on January 22, will run through May 29.


Herman Leonard created iconic portraits that shaped the image of jazz music and its identity in the American psyche. Working in New York and Paris in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s, Leonard captured such legendary artists as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday and Dizzy Gillespie, among others.


The photos will be displayed together for the first time since they came to the museum in 1998.


Tours of the exhibition are available for groups. To schedule tours, call Director of Education Mollie Clarke at (860) 443-2545, ext. 110, or email clarke@lymanallyn.org. For more information, visit the museum’s official website http://www.lymanallyn.org/
