Feel the Rhythm

5–5:30 pm

Floor Five, Neil Bluhm Family Galleries

To complement Stuart Davis’s work, which was deeply influenced by the sounds and rhythms of jazz, award-winning pianist Justin Kauflin will provide a musical performance in the gallery. Kauflin (b. 1986), an American jazz pianist, composer, and record producer, has been blind from a hereditary disorder since age eleven. Kauflin has won the VSA International Young Soloist Award, was selected as a semifinalist in the Thelonious Monk Competition in 2011, and has recorded two full-length albums. He is the subject of the award-winning documentary Keep On Keepin’ On, produced by Quincy Jones.

The performance will be followed by Verbal Description and Touch Tours for visitors who are blind or have low vision.

Free with Museum admission.
