Jazz in July
The IU Art Museum will host its twenty-second annual Jazz in July concert series this summer. Free, family-friendly concerts are scheduled to take place every Friday night in July beginning at 6:30 p.m.
July 5: Craig & the Crawdads
July 12: HipHarp Jazz Trio
July 19: Tonos Triad

Cool off in the Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Arts of Africa, the South Pacific, and the Americas on the third floor of the museum from 5:30–8:30 p.m. during each performance.
A special gallery talk will be given by Diane Pelrine, The Raymond and Laura Wielgus Curator of African, Oceania, and the Americas, at 5:45 p.m. on July 26 before the final jazz performance. This gallery talk will explore the parallels between the decoration and structures of African textiles and American jazz.
All concerts are open to the public, but seating is limited, so come early. Performances are held outdoors on the museum’s Sculpture Terrace. In the event of rain, concerts will be relocated inside the museum.
