Crystal Bridges guests may be familiar with artist Stuart Davis’ work as five of his pieces are part of the museum’s permanent collection. Seen as an extensive collection, the exhibition highlights the jazz rhythms in Davis’ works even further with the soft sounds of jazz music played in the galleries throughout the run of the exhibition.

There’s not always a direct link between what [Stuart] Davis was painting and the world of jazz in terms of subject matter, but I think there always was a connection in the spirit of how he created.”

Davis, Stuart
