Records At Play
The Institute of Jazz Studies (IJS) at Rutgers University—Newark has been collecting jazz records and sharing them with a world-wide audience for the past 50 years. These records not only include sound recordings of jazz music, but also the “record” of jazz history found in photographs, documents, written music, and historic artifacts. *Records at Play: The Institute of Jazz Studies @50* is the first time the IJS has exhibited so many of its treasures at once. Although they represent only a small fraction of the Institute’s collections, the artifacts, documents, and sound recordings in this exhibit provide a record of IJS history and the music at its core.
—Paul Robeson Galleries
A joint project of the Chancellor’s Office, the Institute of Jazz Studies and the new Paul Robeson Large Gallery, this catalog presents the extensive jazz collection of the University. Artifacts and archival photos are presented along with a timeline in a rhythmic flow.
We created a logo for the exhibition based on record label. The logo was used on the title graphic and throughout the exhibition and catalog.
