DESCRIPTION

American Portrait Series includes works in progress from two different collections: Projects Under Construction and The Melody Still Lingers On. Each collection captures a facet of American history, highlighting artists, musicians, and activists – known and unknown - who have impacted a particular political or creative arena, or American culture at large. Subjects in Projects Under Construction may have been embarking upon profound change, or may have started or been in the middle of great progress on behalf of humanity, while The Melody Still Lingers On captures jazz artists and entertainers who have contributed to the collective development of melody and song.
