On May 15, the special fine art and memorabilia exhibition "A Tribute To Miles Davis and Carlos Santana" opened at the Lush Life Gallery, part of The Jazz Heritage Center (JHC) in the Fillmore. The gallery specializes in jazz-themed art mediums, and is partnering with Legacy Recordings -- Sony BMG Music's award-winning catalog division -- to honor these two music legends with a one-of-a-kind show coinciding with Davis' birthday month (May), and Santana's forthcoming Legacy release Multi Dimensional Warrior. Santana will also perform two rare club dates at The Fillmore on May 20-21 in celebration of the album, a career-spanning 2-CD set.

"A Tribute To Miles Davis and Carlos Santana," which runs through July 30, was curated by JHC Executive Director Peter Fitzsimmons in association with Legacy. The exhibition features multi-media works of art including limited edition photographs and sculptures and original paintings. Rare artifacts and memorabilia related to music legends Miles Davis and Carlos Santana will also be on display.

Show highlights include original oil paintings of Miles Davis and Carlos Santana from the Jazz Master Series by world renowned portrait painter BRUNI, whose work is in the collections of museums including the Smithsonian Institution, where her canvas of Duke Ellington hangs. Renowned sculptor Ed Dwight -- who was American's first African American astronaut trainee -- will be represented with mixed media images and limited edition bronze pieces capturing Davis. JHC Resident Artist and "Youth Jazz N' Art" instructor Rhonel Roberts will also exhibit original paintings.

Photographically, the exhibition will include limited editions of rare silver gelatin prints of Miles Davis from the archives of ICON Collectibles -- The Art Of Music and Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Additional images of Davis will be provided courtesy of the estate of Jerry Stoll and JHC Public Art Panel contributor Mark Brady. Carlos Santana photographs, memorabilia, artifacts and collectibles will be on display courtesy of Santana Management.

Lush Life Gallery (1320 Fillmore St., SF, CA 94115) and the Take Five Gift Shop help financially sustain the educational outreach components of the non-profit Jazz Heritage Center organization. Based in the hub of the city's historic Fillmore Jazz Preservation District, the JHC will also launch JazzGenesis: San Francisco and the Birth of Jazz, the first permanent exhibition space showcasing San Francisco as an origin of jazz. JHC's mission is to promote and preserve jazz while celebrating its presence as an active, living art form.
