Satchmo at the BAC Exhibit


  • Beverly Arts Center (773) 445-3838 2407 West 111th Street Chicago, IL, 60655 United States

The Beverly Arts Center is thrilled to be part of the Louis Armstrong Festival and will be telling another version of Louis Armstrong’s life with the assistance of the Louis Armstrong House Museum and archivist Ricky Riccardi. The archives, located at Queens College in New York, will be loaning components that will highlight his gig at the Waldorf, Race and Civil Rights, Armstrong in Chicago, and finally his relationship with manager Joe Glaser.

The Satchmo gallery exhibit will open at the BAC and Gallery Guichard on January 8 with an opening reception on January 10. A bus will be available to take patrons between the BAC and Gallery Guichard on January 10 only.
