Jennie C. Jones On Jazz And Art

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

The great jazz impresario George Wein is best-known for founding the famous Newport Jazz Festival.  But he’s also created one of the most prestigious awards in American visual arts. The Wein prize, worth $50,000, is awarded each year, but the 2012 announcement was delayed by Hurricane Sandy. So it wasn’t until this week that we learned who this year’s recipient would be: Jennie C. Jones. Jones, an artist based in Brooklyn tell us how music, specifically jazz, plays a central role in her work.
