As a result of the 2018 Elkhart Jazz Festival, this spotlight exhibit featuring fifteen works or expressions from an experience with jazz was conceived. From this, the work of seven artists was chosen to be displayed at the Midwest Museum of American Art.
The artists featured in this exhibit were given event passes to select venues during the three-day festival so that they could create an onsite experience in Jazz. As depicted by this spotlight exhibit, their experience with jazz, whether charged with an outpouring of expressive spontaneity or by the literal depiction of a smooth performance represent individual encounters with the art of Jazz.
