"My entire life in jazz contributed to my aspiration to learn more and appreciate the world of art. Miró’s ascendancy coincided with the golden age of jazz in the 1930s and 1940s. I was happy to be able to acquire these works on paper.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of these artworks will benefit Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization created in 2010 to ensure the legacies of the Newport Jazz Festival and Newport Folk Festival, which I founded. The mission of Newport Festivals Foundation is to continue presenting these historic festivals and to celebrate jazz and folk music through educational programs."
