Dexter Story performs bass guitar and percussion with Marcus L. Miller’s Project World Drum at the opening reception of William Grant Still Art Center’s ‘So What! – The Artistry of Miles Davis.’ This installation is the 8th Annual Exhibition in WGSAC’s African-American Composers Exhibition & Music Education Series featuring archival recordings, magazines, posters, original photographs, and collected discography of 107 laps, 15 78s, and 8 33s from bebop and the birth of cool to electric experimentations and beyond.
The African-American Composer Exhibition and Music Education Series began at The William Grant Still Arts Center in 2009. This exhibition series selects and celebrates the life and work of an African-American Composer annually. Panels, concerts, exhibits, workshops, and other programs bring the exhibit to life.
The exhibition series is held in conjunction with The William Grant Still Arts Center’s African-American Heritage Education Program. Our Center focuses on teaching art skills, cultural history, and music through practice and playing experience via the works of groundbreaking musical innovators in the tradition of our namesake, Dr. William Grant Still, to beginning and intermediate students of all ages.
