Pittsburgh was a hub for jazz in the 20th century, and photographer Charles "Teenie" Harris seemed to capture every electrifying show. Teenie Harris Photographs: Erroll Garner and Jazz from the Hill features the work of two iconic Pittsburgh artists: Harris, and pianist and composer Erroll Garner. Curated by Grammy-nominated jazz musician Geri Allen, this exhibition shines a light on the Golden Age of Jazz through exceptional photographs from Carnegie Museum of Art's Teenie Harris Archive, and contributions from the Erroll Garner Archive at the University of Pittsburgh. See how legends such as Garner, Earl “Fatha” Hines, Billy Eckstine, Duke Ellington, Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, and Ahmad Jamal made their way through Pittsburgh's clubs and music halls.

Companion Exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art, December 17, 2016–Summer 2017.

Wednesday-Thursday: 11:00am-6:00pm; Friday-Saturday: 11:00am-8:00pm; Sunday: 11:00am-5:00pm.
