The 2008 Atlanta Jazz Festival features artwork from critically acclaimed artist Joe Overstreet’s Storyville Series. The Storyville Series weaves a tapestry that reveals the life and culture of the notorious District in New Orleans that flourished between 1715 and 1917 and captures the music, mysteries and magic of the city. The paintings of this Series are embroidered with oil pigment actually applied with palette knife and paper and pay tribute to the past, to the birth of jazz, and explore the paradox of New Orleans history.
Presented by the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs, the exhibit is free and will be on display for public viewing at City Gallery East.
