PLAYING THE CHANGES:
The Life, Music and Photographs
of Milt Hinton
EXHIBITION AVAILABLE: Through DEC. 15, 2019
Documentary Film Screening:  Nov. 10 at 3 PM

Milton John Hinton (June 23, 1910-Dec 19, 2000) was a legendary bass player and photographer. Over the course of his seven-decade career, he became one of the most recorded bassists in history.

He also took tens of thousands of photographs that capture his behind-the-scenes life in music. The grandson of a slave in rural Mississippi, he knew the realities of discrimination. As a successful musician, he knew how to play the changes.

This exhibition is free and open to the public and is available during the operating hours of the James E. Lewis Museum of Art.  For more information, call the Museum at 443-885-3030.
Sun:  12 Noon - 4 PM
Tues-Sat:  11AM - 4 PM
[Closed Mondays]
Playing the Changes provides an unrivaled perspective on the life and legacy of jazz legend Milt Hinton, one of the 20th century's most accomplished bass players.

A documentary film, Keeping Time, will be screened on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 3 PM in the Recital Hall of the Murphy Fine Arts Center.  The film will be followed by a lecture.  The film is written and directed by David G. Berger, Holly Maxson, and Kate Hirson.
