Art Smith: Jewelry, Jazz, and Jete - Thru, Feb 16/ 7 pm


I am excited to invite you to the event, Art Smith: Jewelry, Jazz, & Jeté presented by the Museum of Arts & Design (MAD).

On Thursday, February 16, from 7 to 8 PM ET, join us for an evening of jewelry, jazz, and dance, as we celebrate the modernist jeweler Art Smith, whose work is currently on view in Jewelry Stories. Smith confronted barriers of race, sexual orientation, and class to become a successful purveyor of wearable sculpture. Among his clients were haute glitterati, such as Duke Ellington, Pearl Primus, and Lena Horne.

In honor of Smith, jazz singer Lezlie Harrison will perform a special selection of songs that embody the spirit of Smith’s work. The evening will also feature a modern dance performance by Kevin Boseman set to recordings of Art Smith’s recollections of his life and work, a screening of a short profile of the jeweler from the PBS series Craft in America, and a conversation with jewelry expert Sebastian Grant on Smith’s artistic inspirations and legacy.

The event is hosted and guest curated by moi (Souleo).
