An Evening with Pete Souza

Mon., Feb. 19, 6:30 p.m.

If a picture is, in fact, worth a thousand words, then the work of photojournalist and former chief official White House photographer for both presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama could fill anthologies. Souza, who captured Obama’s most private moments, gave us the now iconic image of the president sitting on the same bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat in 1955. The bus is now located in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, where Souza will be in attendance to share intimate stories spanning his career. He'll also discuss his latest book, Obama: An Intimate Portrait. $42.50+

Modern art, modernist furniture, and visions of a modern lifestyle appeared on many LP covers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Jazz record covers, in particular, often featured abstract art, midcentury furniture, and modernist graphics, emphasizing a break with the past, and aligning design motifs with innovative sound technologies and the improvisation and arresting time signatures of jazz. These albums suggest that any aficionado of contemporary tastes will want to hear these sounds in hi-fi, and also surround themselves with abstract art and modernist design. FREE
