Don’t miss this great exhibit at the Northwest African American Museum. “After Hours, the Joint is Jumpin!” is a fantastic exhibit documenting the exciting jazz scene that flourished in the Northwest between 1930 and 1960. Composed of contemporary portraits of jazz-era legends, vintage photographs and historic artifacts, After Hours captures the pulsating atmosphere and entertaining characters of the era. Focusing on the vibrant jazz scenes in three Northwest cities-Portland, Seattle & Spokane- the exhibition will look at the ways in which the clubs, performers, and music shaped the rhythms of each city. The exhibit runs through December 25, 2010.
