The Gibbes Museum of Art has partnered with Charleston Jazz to present three summer concerts featuring original songs written in response to various artworks on display at the Gibbes. 

The new series “Art of Jazz” will present musical interpretations of visual art using the sonic fusion and poetic composition of jazz music. 

The three jazz performances are as follows: June 22 with vocalist Zandrina Dunning and keyboardist Stephen Washington, July 20 with the Kevin Patton Quartet and August 24 with the Jamie Slater Trio. 

All three performances are at 6 p.m. at The Gibbes Museum of Art downtown. Tickets are available at Charleston Jazz.
