“I have a new photography exhibit that’s coming to the beautiful Indiana Landmarks Center during the month of August. It’s called “The Naptown Scene” and it is my tribute, in photographs, to some of the musicians I’ve had the pleasure to see, hear and befriend over the years.” says Mark Sheldon.
The exhibit will feature about 50 jazz photographs from the past 15 years or so. The musicians included in this exhibit are either from Indy, have lived in Indy, or have built their careers here. This exhibit will include the legendary folks with names like Freddie Hubbard, James Spaulding, Larry Ridley, Jimmy Coe & Slide Hampton, Mingo Jones, Al Coleman as well as many of the younger players on the scene today.
Author/Historian David Williams will be in attendance, signing copies of his book Indianapolis Jazz:: The Masters, Legends and Legacy of Indiana Avenue. “I’m sure some of the folks featured in the book will be in attendance as well.”
In addition, Rob Dixon, Nick Tucker and Brian Yarde will be on hand to provide some great music throughout the night.
Please stop in, enjoy a beverage and take a look at some of your favorite Indy musicians.
Thanks to Indy Jazz Fest, Indiana Landmarks, Yinger Design, Lin Frauenhoff & Roberts Camera for their support of this project.
