A Musical Tribute to Thomas Hart Benton

February 20, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In 1930, Thomas Hart Benton was commissioned to create a mural for the boardroom of The New School on West 12th Street in New York. Animated by movement and sound, his ten-panel work, America Today, offers a moving narrative of American life in the 1920s and the onset of the Great Depression. Benton’s masterful mural also inspires this evening of dance music, as Jazz pianist Orrin Evans leads his Captain Black Big Band in a sizzling rendition of this Golden Age of popular music.
