About this event

The exhibition is in partnership with the Community Music Center of Houston and Harambee Art Gallery.

Brown, who grew up in Houston’s Third Ward and still lives there, is an American jazz and blues singer who sang and toured with Louis Armstrong’s All Star Band from 1961 to 1968. She continues to perform at clubs in Houston at the age of 85.

The exhibition opens Saturday, June 11, at 3 p.m. at The Collective, 4101 San Jacinto St., Suite 116, with a reception/interview. Artwork celebrating Black Music Month will be on display by artists Tamirah Collins, Khaili Sam-Sin, JustCesca, Walt Haller and others.

The Community Music Center, 3020 Holman St., a nonprofit music performing arts and education organization with the mission of preserving Black music traditions, will host another exhibition Sunday, June 12, at 2:30 p.m. with an interview with Brown from 3 to 4 p.m.
